    Thanks! It is a bit of a challenge to remember everything that goes in the recipe because I am so used to just making it instead of thinking about it LOL. One ingredient that I forgot to mention is salt but I am not sure how to modify the recipe! Amount of Potatoes is definitely to one's liking!
