    I got this out of our local newspaper. I always loved their potatoes and couldn't wait to try this recipe--it sure tasted like theirs.

      This was very very similar to what I remembered from Knapp's. Make sure to cube your potatoes small enough (I should have diced mine smaller) and put them in a fairly shallow baking dish to get the most browned topping possible, as this is the best part :) I also followed other reviewer's advice and used the Old English jar cheese.

      As a kid we had family birthday celebrations at Bill Knapps all the time. This recipe recaptured their iconic au gratin potatoes perfectly (I used the Velveeta as I was unable to obtain the Old English that has been recommended by others). Now all I need is to make their chocolate cake!

      This recipe is very close to the original. I agree that using the Kraft Old English Cheese brings this recipe a bit closer to the original. I worked for Bill Knapp's for 5 years (high school and college). We sprinkled a very generous amount of paprika over the mixture just before baking. We never used any bread crumbs to achieve the signature crust. I sprayed the baking pan / ramekins with a butter spray before adding the mixture. I remember the dish washers hated cleaning the baked on cheese off the ramekins.
