      A fantastic and accurate clone. I will most definitely be making this again.
      I didn't have any heavy cream on hand, so I substituted additional milk for heavy cream and added an extra tablespoon of butter to maintain the fat content.

      So delish :) my boyfriend & i both thought it tasted pretty darn close to applebees-the only thing i will differently is to make the potatoes a little more lumpy (more like applebees)
