Tips  

Cheddar cheese comes in a variety of types from mild to extra sharp. If you’re looking for a less intense Cheddar flavor, use mild Cheddar. If you enjoy a more intense Cheddar flavor, use sharp Cheddar.

Yukon gold potatoes have a waxy texture that holds up better than russet or baking potatoes, which tend to fall apart in the slow-cooking process.
