I can't believe I'm the first to try this. It is definitley a great comfort food. You could probably add even more potato if you want a heavier consistency, but this is very nice. Served with a salad and some fresh foccacia - delish! The only thing I did different is use a splash of Merlot in place of the sherry. Worked just fine. Thanks Mark!
