Very, very nice. The feta cheese makes it different than the usual potato and cheese casserole. Instead of herbed feta cheese I used a regular low fat but added various herbs (dill, chives and basil) to the potatoes. I used some egg substitute I had in the fridge instead of regular eggs. I also used an electric mixer as recommended, and that worked out quite well. This recipe is a great make-ahead recipe. I prepared this in the morning, then in the evening I preheated the oven, covered the dish and cooked for 30 minutes then uncovered and cooked for an additional 15 minutes. It turned out perfectly browned and dinner that evening was a snap. Very enjoyable meal, thanks!
