    Debbie in Florida's Note:

    I got this recipe from a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that my mom bought in 1969. The recipe calls for 1/4 cup of chopped green onions, but I am not a big fan so I substituted with 1 tablespoon of onion flakes. This is great with mashed potatoes. I tried this for the first time tonight and my husband really surprised me not only did he go back for seconds....but thirds also!!!

      Delicious! It snowed today and this was the perfect comfort food. I've made this several times, and I always feel they are a big soggy. I figured out today that if you squeeze the shredded potato to get the moisture out before you add it in it really helps. I also added 3 cloves of garlic. It tasted perfect!

      Very simple and good. I skipped the potato b/c I was serving with risotto. And instead of shortening I used a little olive oil. I also used dijon. But it was so simple and my kids loved it. I will make again & will try with different herbs, like thyme or rosemary. Thanks!

      Made this for my dear hubby and he loved it! I used garlic and herb dry breadcrumbs and added some milk to the gravy part along with a beef bouillon cube for more flavor in the gravy. Served over cream potatoes. Made for a comforting dinner this evening. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
