Okay, my first try at this didnt go so well. It ended up tasting more like potato than anything. Strange considering I used more garlic than the recipe called for, one less potato too and added a few fresh herbs that werent in the recipe. I did lighten it up a bit, omitting the eggs and half the cream. Instead I went with half milk and half chicken stalk with a little cream. Did the changes I made cause the strong potato flavor?? Please help, I really want to get this right. Thanks!

I'm not sure, but possibly.

Whenever I try a new recipe, I always make it strictly "by the book" the first time. Then, when I've decided I like it, I play with it to lighten it up, or change some flavors. I suggest you make it by the recipe before you try modifying it any more.
