  1. The flavor was wonderful but the dish turned out runny. I ate them anyway but next time I think I probably need to add a few more potatoes??

    1. Did you drain all the water from the potatoes? You can use more potatoes or adjust the amount of half-and-half. Add a little at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.

  2. Do these reheat well? I was thinking of prepping them the day before and baking the day of, just to get some things out of the way early. Thank you!
