    Hi! I used russet potatoes for the recipe (as the type wasn't specified) and it looked nothing like yours; I'm quite disappointed. Your recipe looks delicious, but what variety of potatoes did you use? Thank you :)

    Most recipes like this recommend Yukon golds-they have a nice mixture of crunchy outside but remain creamy inside.
