Recipe by Sheila (Glasgow, MT)
Yummy substitute for potatoes, side dish or my family liked it so much I think we could make it a meal. I mixed all ingredients together in the baking dish and skipped the extra dishes and I left out the mushrooms and decreased the amount of chives but when I entered the recipe I entered it just as I found it on facebook. My family is still raving about this dish.

5 stars for a great idea but the recipe needed tweaking. I thinned the mixture with a splash of half & half, added salt and pepper, and topped it with crushed Ritz crackers mixed with melted butter and parsley. NOW it's delicious.
