I made this recipe but divided it in half because we didn't have as many people to feed and I also tweaked it a little by frying up a pack of bacon and then added the butter and all of the vegetables to the bacon fat and then folded in. Amazingggggg!! Best potato filling yet!

Made exactly as written and I must admit I was a bit nervous when I put it in the oven. You see, I had made Potato Filling when we lived in the Pennsylvania Dutch area many years ago and this did not look the same. It was soupier and I seemed to recall that they never peeled the potatoes back then. However, this dish set up just fine and tasted just how we remembered. Well worth the effort but next time I am going to scrub the potatoes and leave the skins on!

Everything is similar to my grandmother's recipe except she did not chop/cut the onions and celery finely! Great filling/stuffing!

I was just about to post my recipe for filling when I found this one, which is identical. Yes, my Nana made this too and we are very Pennsylvania Dutch. This is delicious, especially with giblet gravy. On special occasions try adding 2 cups chopped fresh oysters. Definite comfort food for me!
