This is a great recipe! Very easy to make and very tasty. The only change I made was I did peel my potatoes. Thanks for posting this recipe!:)

Aug. 23, 2004: Absolutely delicious. Followed this exactly, didn't have fresh parsley - didn't need it. Yum. Thanks very much! UPDATE: I have refined the technique since making these for a couple years now - I dribble the melted butter mixture and cheese between the layers of potatoes. I find that the dish is tastier that way. Just had it again tonight and it never fails to please!

We love this recipe! We've been using this for a while as it was listed in a TOH Cookbook too. Very yummy. I like to use Yukon potatoes for this dish as it makes it a nice "golden" color as the russets do seem to make it look rather gray/green. When I don't have fresh onion, I use dried onions and they work just as well.
