    1,144 mg of sodium in 1 3/4 cups is way to high. We should not have this much sodium in one serving! Can this be correct? I have not made this yet.

    Awesome recipe. I added more butter and salt to the recipe than what it called for. I've made this many times since seeing this in the TOH magazine many years ago. Love it!
