This was delicious tasting! My only complaint was that since it was created in a slow cooker, the potatoes and cheese didn't get that crusty goodness that one gets when baking it in the oven. However the leftovers were placed in a baking dish to be re-heated in the oven. I also added some crispy bacon as well. made to go with left over ham. Thanks for sharing!

Holy cow! These potatoes are fantastic! I've made many au gratin potatoes before, but I have finally found the perfect recipe. The whole family devoured these at dinner last night. The cheese sauce was exactly what I was looking for. A great blend of flavors. These were pretty easy to make as well. Thanks for sharing. I love them!
