I'm re-reviewing these tonight. They were great. I omitted the cheese and just used the breadcrumbs (lots of cheese in 2 other dishes) they worked better this time than last and really were delicious. Still loved the garlic in them Bergy and now problems with the topping this time although I didn't use the cheese. Here's the original 4 star review....These were good, but most of the topping ended up on the bottom of the dish. Next time, I will omit the breadcrumbs, so there is a stronger parmesan flavour from what does stay on the top of the spud. I make these occasionally, but have never put garlic in them before-loved that! Thanks Bergy for another useful recipe.

Based on Jan S's recommendation, I omitted the breadcrumbs. The potatoes were good, but for some reason they tasted so much more flavorful the second day reheated in the microwave. They were a great complement to sausage and sauerkraut!
