  1. I am confused🤔🤔 The picture seems to show sliced potatoes yet the recipe calls for mashed potatoes. Is it an error? I’ve never ever made them with mashed potatoes and I can’t imagine how it would work.

    • Yes! I was wondering the same thing!?!? I suppose you could mix the two forms of potato in the same dish for a heartier result!!! Id love to give that a try!
