Sounds really nice.

Russ

It was more than nice. It was great. I really am po'ed that my camera card got corrupted. I can only describe that the Pistachio Cream thickened while baking to form wonderfully textured coating for the potatoes and the Paprika was an excellent complimentary ingredient. The Canadian Bacon stiffened into chewy bits and the Asiago was the perfect medium for the Pistachio Cream, CB and Paprika flavors that gave these Potatoes a stand out flavor medium.

I can't take additional pictures because I only discovered the problem after turning ravenous glutton and eating all of the Scalloped Potatoes with two melted Asiago topped Breaded Chicken Patties.
