  1. I loved this so much! And it was very convenient to use all my leftovers hahahah thank you Chungah!

  2. YAAAS! This looks SO good- love the creaminess and those crunchy corn flakes on top! Can’t wait to try it!

  3. It is super easy and delicious!

    I wonder what could substitute all the cheese on this recipe, if you are a vegan and really have no privilege to buy vegan cheese in your country.

    Thank you!

    • Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment.

  4. I was grumpy before I ate.
    Then I ate this. And I was slightly more happy again. Comfort food. Loved it.

    Thank you. 

  5. Easy peasy recipe ! I did it with what I had in my fridge, so I didn’t pick the same cheeses, but it was a great way to finish off a big mashed potatoes dish I did the day before. Thank you !

  6. In New Zealand we do not get Ranch seasoning, only made up Ranch dressing. Any suggestions what I could use in place of this. Not really knowing what it is makes it a little hard to improvise. Many thanks

  7. Hope you had a great thanksgiving! Yumm!! This looks so good. I love the combination of mashed potatoes and broccoli!! 

  8. This sounds like just the dish to have for a hearty, comforting meal, and what a bonus, to be able to use leftovers! And who wouldn’t like potatoes and broccoli! A great, easy recipe to have. Thanks for sharing.
