This was super quick and easy! My 5 and 7 year old liked it alot. I cooked the potatoes in salted water and added salt, pepper and a little garlic salt. After 15 minutes I put the 1/2 cup of cheese on and shut the oven off and let it melt. (I used cheddar). Then sprinkled a little more on their plates. I have cheese lovers. I'd use 3/4 of a can of water in the cream of mushroom soup to make it a touch thicker next time.

I made this I cut my potatoes with a slicer when I went to boil them I did for about 10 mins well they turned to mush, I put them in anyway so it did not turn out right but it was ok. It was just not scalloped potatoes it was mushy potatoes. Next time I will either not boil them and just cook a little longer since they are so thin or I will boil them for 2 or 3 mins just to soften a little... all in all it was good it was a little watery but I contribute that to the mushy potatoes and the soup, I did however only put a can and a half of water into the soup when heating it up because of the other reviews. I will make this again. But like I said I will make it differently next time... It was tasty still tho.. very yummy even tho mushy...
