I am no cooker but this came out awesome. I added 2 things though...1 cup of milk stirred in while mashing and fresh cut scallions. 1 small bunch of them. Came out GREAT.

I made this St. Patrick's Day Bunco party and it was well received. When I make it the next time I will probably add more butter and some cheddar to step up flavor.

Awesome! I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious! Made for St. Patrick's Day. My mom is Irish, she loved them! My dad is Italian and he loved them too! Will make again! Thanks fo...
