My husband and I have lived in four different states, and we've grown potatoes in every one of them. I mostly make this dish for family, but company loves it, too. It's almost a meal in itself—all you need to add is a salad. —Nancy Smith, Scottsdale, Arizona

"Used 2 cups grated potatoe and it turned out fine"

"@creamers: The ounces shown for the cheese represent weight, not volume. You cannot equate ounces (volume) with ounces (weight) for non-liquid ingredients (or for dense liquid ingredients). 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese weighs approximately 6 ounces. The recipe is correct. (Giving 5 stars to counteract creamers 1-star.)"

"Not a review, just a comment. 1 1/2 cups is 12 ounces, not 6. 6 ounces is 3/4 cup."

"Great hearty recipe. I did have to cook the crust a little bit longer to get it crusty."

"I used 4 med. potatoes, but still had way too much crust. Couldn't fit in the filling after baking. Hope it tastes good as I had to bake the remainder of the filling separately. Good thing it was just for a Sunday supper."
