OMG there are not enough stars for this one. We all LOVED it. I replaced some of the potato with cauliflower to make it more "me" friendly and used fresh onion. I also used sour cream instead of the yougurt (just what I had on hand)
A trick that I learned many years ago is to mix the flour in with a cold liquid (the milk) and whisk it in there. Then when I pour it in, I don't get lumps. Works great in gravy too. is an awesome recipe.
