This was very simple to make. I did mix potatoes with main ingredients before putting them in the pan and topping with the additional cheese and bacon. I had a ton of potatoes from the garden so I made up 4 13x9 pans of them. When completely cooled in fridge, I bagged up in quart-sized freezer bags and froze the rest. We just had some last night again from the freezer and they're as good as freshly made!! That makes it at least a TEN star rating. :)

This is a great potato dish! I made one change in the cooking process; I placed all the sliced potatoes in the baking dish from the start and let them cook completely in the oven (no pre-boiling), and they were done in about 40 minutes. Other than that, I stuck to the recipe as written, and we all really liked this dish. I will definitely make this recipe again. Thanks for sharing your recipe, ratherbeswimmin'.

This was so good and very easy to make. I did add minced onion though. Also, I left off the bacon as we don't like bacon in casseroles. The flavor of this was wonderful and rich. I will definitely make it again and I thank you for sharing it.
