very good! everyone request's these for family funtions.
I just made these for the first time, for our large family gathering. I cooked and cut up an entire 5 lb bag of small red potatoes. I used 3 cups of skim milk and 1 cup of 1/2 & 1/2, cooked the sauce to thicken before adding in a good sharp cheddar (added a bit more than 2 cups) . I meant to add onion with the garlic but forgot to buy an onion so added a bit of dried onion with the milk. Everything else was as directed. Delicious! There was plenty of sauce for the additional potatoes and we ate every last bite. I will surely make these again. 5/27/13: This time I used russet potatoes, peeled and cut up, precooked in batches in the m/w, added 2 teaspoons grainy Dijon mustard to the (all milk, no cream) cheese sauce. Absolutely fantastic!
Really wonderful! Made as stated. Thickened the white sauce only a bit before pouring on the potatoes. I was worried because it looked like soup when I put it in the oven. Between the potatoes and flour it thickened up perfectly while baking.
I will probably add 3 cups of milk instead of 4 the next time that I make this. It was a little watery. Besides that, it tasted great!
This is the 4th recipe I've tried, and I've finally found the best one! These are by far the best I've ever had!
Followed the recipe exactly and was not at all impressed. They lacked flavor, there was too much sauce, over all just a disappointment. I had no other option but to throw them away wasting very good ingredients.
Sooo good! I used a very sharp cheddar after reading some of the reviews - smart move. The milder cheeses might make this somewhat bland. Can't wait to incorporate other cheeses! Very good base gratin. Its a keeper - thank you for posting.
I made half of this recipe for a Thanksgiving party of six people and the whole pan was eaten. Of course, I did use a bit more cheese than the recipe suggested, and half & half instead of milk :)
I put 1 cup sour cream french onion dip and 2 cups milk in the roux, then thicken it and added the cheese. Good way to use leftover dip and gives a stronger garlic and onion flavor. Loved this recipe!
This is a good recipe. My family enjoyed it immensely. As other reviewers suggested I cut the millk (2% was what I had) by a cup and added 1/2 cup Half & Half. I also added a bunch of steamed kale. I liked cooking the potatoes before and cut them in cubes as the recipe directed. They were very good left over.
