    I used less salt than called for. I added about a cup of part-skim mozzerella. I only used 1 Tablespoon of Margarine. It was wonderful! The child and hubby loved it. Next try, I'll use olive oil instead of marg and Mrs. Dash instead of salt and pepper. Family says I should make it tomorrow. Winner! - 9/26/08

    Saw the recipe, I happened to have two potatoes I needed to do something with, so I thought "Why not try this recipe." Boy it was the best idea i ever had. Easy to make, had all the ingredients WOW is it good. Have added it to my cookbook, definitely will make again. - 7/13/09

    For those of you adding cheese, please remember that cheese is high in sodium. This reicipe is high enough as is. For me I will add onions and lower the salt. That should get it in an even better range than it already is. Thanks for posting this recipe! - 9/16/08

    This is a nice simple dish to make. It's a bit on the bland side, though I've added nutritional yeast and extra spices to give it a bit more oomph. Slicing potatoes in the food processor makes it a ton easier! Thanks for the tip! - 12/6/07
