    Very good. I used 1/2 Half & Half and 1/2 chicken broth for the liquid. Didn't have cayenne pepper so used smoky paprika. Also chunked up leftover Christmas ham in it..Delish!

    I made this for Easter dinner and it was a big hit. My husband asked me to keep this one.

    MMMMmmm..a real comfort type side dish. Rich, Creamy, Delicious!!! I used evaporated milk in place of half and half. That was the only deviance I made to a great recipe that will be repeated often. (I like the idea of doing these in a 9x13 baking dish).

    Made this with some ham steaks, so we had scalloped potatoes and ham!!! I used 26 oz bag of already peeled and sliced potatoes, which made for a really quick way to make the potatoes. I followed the directions, except I used a little of the seasoning salt and a little bit of sea salt and left out the cayenne pepper and didn't have the swiss cheese on hand, so just used the parmesan and cheddar. Thanks for sharing a great potato dish Kittencal!! Made for 123 Tag!!!

    This got good reviews around the table! I would have preferred it to be a little more creamy (maybe I'll add less flour next time) and at the end it needed a touch more pepper. Thanks for posting :) I always enjoy trying your recipes! Update: 2 days later lol With a little extra salt and pepper the leftovers went from "good" to "man that's good! mmmmm mmmmm!!!!" Thanks again Kittencal :)
