    Default Does the carb count look right on this?

    I am going through my bookmarks and removing old stuff. I never did make
    this recipe and I can't make it for myself now seeing as how I can't have
    cheese or tuna but... 10 grams of carb per serving? That just looks wrong.
    Straight out, 1 cup of corn and 3 cups of mashed potatoes would be 4 cups of
    carbs with 1/2 a cup being a serving or 15 grams. Since there are 4
    servings and presumably a serving would be a cup, that would be 30 grams
    right there. No? And then there's the cheese sauce. That is supposed to
    be thick so more carbs right there. No? Am I missing something? Here is
    the recipe:

    In case you don't want to click the link, here are the ingredients:

    3 cups cheese (thick, sauce)
    425 grams tuna (water)
    1 cup corn (kernel)
    3 cups mashed potatoes
    12 cup cheese (grated)
    salt
    pepper
    1 tbsp chives (chopped)

    Cheese sauce to me is flour, milk and cheese with seasonings. Even
    without the cheese sauce the carb count of the corn and mashed potato is
    way off.

    neat recipe, everything in american style measurement and the tuna in metric
    measurements.
