    Used different ingredients. Yummy way to use up mash. I added soured cream, chives and cheddar cheese on top. Mmmm- comfort food.  -  15 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Very easy and very tasty! Perfect comfort food. I added a bit more milk and let it simmer a while to really let the flavours blend.  -  15 Sep 2008
