These were positively the most fantastic scalloped potatoes I've had in a very long time. The Swiss cheese and bacon gave the potatoes t a nice flavor boost, and the half-and-half made it all so creamy and tender. I will definitely make this often. Thanks for another great recipe, sweetcakes. Made for Spring 2010 Pick-A-Chef.

I was looking for something new to serve on Easter Sunday, and this really filled the bill. I am used to making a white sauce for my scalloped potatoes, which can be more time-consuming. This was much easier. I used a combination of Swiss and Gruyere (and next time, I think I might throw in a little Cheddar to round it out). I also think you could add more bacon if you like. Believe it or not, these were really good when I was picking at leftovers hours later. I think I ate more then than I did at dinner! Thanks for posting this new twist on scalloped potatoes.

This was awesome! I never really ate scalloped potatoes because I had only had the ones from a box (and those are bad). This was a unique twist on scalloped potatoes using the swiss cheese in them. They had a good flavor, easy to put together. I made one change: I used fat free half-and-half. This is definitely a keeper! Made for Fall PAC 2009
