"So good and so easy. I like that it takes just a few simple ingredients. I've added some ham chunks to it to make it a little more hearty on occasion."

"This was well worth the time turned out delicious.

I cut the recipe down for two people. I used 2 medium potatoes (boiling type, left skin on) sliced med. with my mandolin, melted1 tablespoon butter and added potatoes. It took about 20 min. to get them nice and brown turning them with a spatula so you don't break them up. Added S&P and added only about 1/4 cup milk, covered and it took another 15 minutes or plus to have most of milk evaporate, added 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and put cover back on for about 5 minutes. The recipe was worth all the time next time it will be easier than the first :)"

"This is a 'no brainer,' but I oven roast the sliced up spud on a non-stick cookie sheet. Then into a micowave with the cheese. For Jollies, (the oven roasting bit) toss some Sage (spice of choice) on top. Combo of two 'how too's.' Or should that be 'how two's?' Chilled down, etc., this makes a heck of a good Potatoe salad. One of those base recipies that you can go nuts with. Darned hard to have a 'failure.'"
