Mild cheese flavor and very creamy sauce. I also added more cheese on top. Might try a blend of cheeses next time for a little change.

I peeled the potatoes first before boiling. I then sliced them because I wasn't sure what "shredding" them really meant. They get sort of broken up anyway when you fold them with the sour cream mixture. We really enjoyed this recipe. It's very filling and has lots of good flavor.

This was good but I think something like nutmeg would have helped. It's a lot of dairy otherwise without something to balance it out.

I made this for a dinner party and it was awesome! Everyone loved it. I add more cheese on the top just before I take it out so it melts it on the top and makes it more cheesier
