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.
It has been a few years since anyone wrote a review for these potatoes so I thought I'd share my opinion so people continue making this SCRUMPTIOUS dish! Well, I followed the recipe to a T with the exception of the cream cheese (I used the 8oz whipped with chives which I saw another person substituted as well-it was on sale at the grocery store and I'm cheap so that's the kind I bought) I have every faith that using whatever original recommended cream cheese would have given me almost the exact same product. I found this recipe a few months back and I've already made these potatoes 3 or 4 times! I'm starting to lose count because it is turning into one of my go-to dishes. Will be making it for the fam again today and I know they are going to devour it! If your looking to impress make this dish, you won't be sorry!
This was simply delicious. Made for a dinner party and I've already given out the recipe three times since.<br/>Fairly easy to make and the outcome is divine.<br/>I did not make any changes except I used Onion and Chive Cream Cheese instead of herbed cream cheese. Not too big of a difference.<br/><br/>Will definitely be making again.
I made this tonight and it was AMAZING!! I left out the nutmeg and the only thing I changed was the cream cheese. I couldn't find the one the recipe calls for so I did as another reviewer suggested and used normal cream cheese with a packet of good seasons garlic and herb salad dressing mix. This will now be my go to scalloped potatoes recipe!
The hit of our Easter dinner! I love all the different cheeses in here. A splurge, definitely, but SO worth it!
This recipe was excellent!!!! I have tried many scalloped potato recipes on this site and now I can say that I have found my scalloped potato recipe. It was really easy to make and the results were so delicious. I followed the directions exactly how stated except I was confused about cream cheese with herbs. I used the Philadelphia Cooking cr?me w/ cheese and herb because that was the closest thing I could find that match. If anyone knows what I should have used please let me know. Thank you so much for posting the wonderful recipe.
Excellent!!!!!!!!Oh SOOOOOOOOOOOO good! Was unsure of the nutmeg, but through it in anyway! Was glad I did, Thank you!!!! It has been made many times in my home.
What delicious scalloped potatoes. And I do love potatoes ... and cheese. I used 8 oz. container whipped garlic onion cream cheese, sharp white cheddar and swiss. The sauce for these is very rich and tasty. This is my scalloped potato recipe now. Thank you so much for sharing.
