Just what we were looking for, Member yoyomi

Loved this recipe and would highly recommend it. The taste was good, especially the next day, it was even better. Glad we doubled the recipe and wondered about not using a cover but followed directions and turned out we didnít need one. This wasnít a real loose & creamy sauce, it was perfect. All flavors absorbed into the potatoes with just enough creaminess left over. You could add other spices but you might lose that good potato and cheesy taste.
