These were excellent! A little salty, though, so I will decrease the salt by half next time. I didn't have shredded cheese thawed, so I put some American cheese slices on it, and it was a hit with my guys! This recipe fed my 4 family members (2 adults and 9 and 13 yr old boys), with no leftovers. If I fix it for company, I will double the recipe.

The first time I made this recipe, it boiled over, so the second time I used a larger pot and it was perfect. I added some carrot slices because I like the look. Wonderful recipe. Much easier than the oven baked.

WOW, is this ever decadent! Like Anu's, my potatoes were done in 15 minutes. I used all the salt called for, but decided to use Kosher instead of iodized after reading the comments. It wasn't too salty at all. I don't know what got into me . I used 1 cup cream & 1/2 cup nonfat milk, and about twice as much cheese as was called for. A little extra cayenne. Instead of cooking uncovered the last 15 minutes, I popped it under the broiler until the cheese was melted and bubbly. Next time, I'm going to try it without altering the ingredients. I'll bet it will be just as wonderful without all the added fat. And, yes, watch out for that milk boiling over! Mine didn't (thanks to the comments), but I had to turn my burner past the low setting to the extra low. If you have a gas stovetop and don't have an extra low setting, you can roll-up/crumple foil in the shape of a donut, put it on your burner and your pan on top of that (to elevate your pan from the heat, to make your low setting even lower).

This is a great way to serve potatoes! Followed recipe to a T and was delighted with the result, be careful and dont let the milk boil over like I did. =)

Hey Dorothy-another great recipe. The only thing I changed was the cheese. I used smoked Gouda-it's what I had on hand and it was great! Thanks, Di

I used Itailian style bread crumbs. I also stirred in about 1/8 cup chopped green onions and 2 cloved of garlic that I minced. Yummy!

This was a quick recipe. Thanks for sharing, again the caution just didn't hit me until I had to clean up the milk mess. It was worth it though.

These potatoes were very good. I will be making these again when we go camping. I made these on my camp stove in a cast iron skillet and had no problems. Thanks for posting this recipe.

This was done much faster than 1 hour! The potatoes were done in 15 minutes, and after stirring in the cheese and breadcrumbs, I cooked only for a couple of minutes. I used black pepper since I didn't have cayenne. This is one easy, tasty potato dish that I'm gonna make often! Update: I agree with cherir that it's a bit too salty. I scaled down to 2 servings and used only 1/2 tsp salt, although the recipe called for 2/3 tsp, and it was still a bit much. Otherwise, it's fantastic!
