This was fantastic! I doubled the recipe and baked them in a large, glass lasagna pan and it took about an hour for them to cook the whole way through. But it was well worth the wait. I served them at our Christmas Eve dinner that we host every year and my FIL bugged me all night until I finally printed out the recipe to send home with him. I will absolutely make these again and again!

Terrific. These are the best scalloped potato's w/cheese recipe I have ever had. It was so easy and had wonderful cheesy flavor throughout. This is a recipe that will be handed out to my friends. Even my 3 yr old loved them. Thank You.

These potatoes sure tasted good, but they took forever to bake. Like Wreckage, I had to bake for almost an hour. I think the dish I baked them in was not the best choice, though. It was one of those round, deep casserole dishes. Next time I'll try it with a shallower rectangle so that the potatoes can be spread out more. I think that will shorten the baking time.
