WOW. . .this is creamy and sinful! I actually rubbed my potatoes in oil and then sprinkled some salt on them. . .375 degrees for 1 hour. I did add some extra heavy cream to the cheese sauce to thin it out a bit. I used manchego with great results. I also added some Spike all purpose seasoning for a bit more flavor. Great stuff.
