    This sounds so yummy!! Do you think I could use corn starch instead of flour to thicken it up (I have a gluten intolerance)? Thanks for sharing!! :)

      I’m sure you could! Just take out a bit of the potatoes – and mash them up and add them back to the pot. Or you could use some of those potato buds!
