Ultimate Scalloped Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Tooltime

I was asked to bring a potato dish for Christmas and this is what I came up with. Everyone loved them and the dish was empty by the end of dinner...which I took as the ultimate compliment. As with all my creations I am usually inspired by other great chefs on this site. The inspiration for these came from "Twice Baked Potato Casserole #26043" by MizzNezz.

Ultimate is a good name for these, so good with an amazing mix of flavors. I only used cheddar cheese as that's all I had but know it would be even better with both types. I'm going to make these again and make sure I have all the right cheese on hand. Makes a lot so had plenty left over and I'm better it's going to be even better the 2nd time around
