"37cathy37, read the ingredients and directions one more time. It does not say 2 tablespoons of salt. It says 2 tablespoons of parsley AND salt, which is listed as 1/2 teaspoon."

"I substituted shredded colby/jack for velveeta, garlic salt for salt, and french fried onions for cornflakes. I omitted diced pimentos and bread. I added 2 cloves garlic, minced. I also only used 6 potatoes. It was fantastic!"
