MY REVIEW

This is a classic fall & winter dish at our table. I made this basic recipe, doubling it for a farm crew, but didn't have low-sodium broth, so I used regular broth, as well as upped the overall salt in the recipe. Although this version is probably much healthier, I believe potatoes require much more than 1/4 tsp. salt. It's all a matter of taste, I guess. Generally, a roux requires a tsp. of salt & 1/4 tsp. of pepper. Unless you are using a smoked meat like ham, I would use a very generous teaspoon of salt for 6 potatoes. Sometimes we add cheese to the layers of potatoes, cut back on the onion, substitute milk, cream, or canned milk, & add minced garlic to the sauce....Just whatever we happen to have on hand, but the basic recipe is the same. I happen to have a lactose intolerant employee, so we made this chicken broth version using onion, garlic, salt & pepper, with paprika & sage sprinkled on the chops.

The pork fell off the bones when done. I also added some sauerkraut. It was a hit in this household
