This is a nice "pantry" side dish. Great when you need a quick side dish. I kicked up the flavor a bit by adding chopped green onions and sprinkling with paprika. My canned potatoes were diced. I did drain them well, but the end result was very runny and soupy. Next time I'd either omit the milk or add extra potatoes. This would work great with frozen thawed hashbrowns. Thanx!
