This was really good but I modified it, adding about 2 cups of chopped celery, 4 cups of chopped Yukon gold potatoes, and a whole cup of chopped onions instead of 1/2 cup. I also added some paprika, garlic powder, sage, and parsley. I still might tweak the seasonings a bit next time but will definitely make again.
