OK, so just give me a spoon and put these potatoes in front of me--cheesy, buttery, creamy...this dish has it all.

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.

This is EXCELLENT! Made it for Easter Sunday and even the little grandkids loved it! My town did not have the cream cheese with herbs, so I substituted that with 1 envelope of Good Seasons Garlic & Herb salad dressing and 6 oz of Philadelphia cream cheese. I reccomend this dish!

I made this for Easter and I was a little disappointed. Pretty bland. I will make them again with different cheeses.
