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

"@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."

"EXCELLENT!! After you shred the potatoes, good idea to salt them and run under cold water to remove the starch. Also, make sure your potatoes are REALLY strained/drained and dry. The extra time and patience are worth it. Great combination! It's an omelet in a potato pancake crust, yummy!!!!! You can customize it to your liking, perfect!!! Thank you for submitting this, A !"

"I thought the recipe was good. I had to make a lot of changes just because of things I didn't have on hand but it still worked out. As for the crust, I thought it tasted good but it did have an ugly grey coloring. I would not have wanted to serve it to guests just because of the appearance. Once my hubby and I got over the color, everything was good."

"The crust has a very unpleasant texture. As someone else said, the crust was excessively thick and doughey which was a shame since the flavor was nice. Thankfully, I have something else I can serve since this is going in the garbage."

"Great idea to use fresh potato as a crust. Followed the recipe as it stated. The crust was a bit dense and doughy but the filling is very tasty. Next time I may use less flour and sauté onion first. Thanks for sharing."
