Wow! This dish was UNBELIEVABLY GOOD. (Warning - it is VERY rich - in the good way.) Everyone that tried it said that it was the best scalloped/au gratin potato dish that they had ever had. It was pretty easy to make too. I did make a couple of alterations. Specifically, I used about 8 Yukon Gold potatoes instead of baking potatoes as I find them more creamy and delicious. Also, instead of 6 oz of herbed cream cheese I used an 8 ox container of whipped garlic/onion cream cheese. Instead of 2 1/2 cups of whole milk, I used 2 cups of 2 percent low fat and 1/2 cup of heavy cream. I used a very sharp, hard, white Irish cheddar cheese as the cheddar. All in all I'm sure that the recipe would be just as good as written, I just changed these things to my taste and what I had on hand. 6 people have asked me for this recipe - I think that's the highest praise I could give it.
