    I had to cut this in half and then still had to restrain myself and my DH, we could have eaten the whole thing in one sitting. Wonderfull stuff!! It went very well with your meat loaf, thanks Erin!!

    A great variation on scalloped potatoes. The only thing I did differently is not peeling the Yukon golds. We like the skins left on. Easy to put together and went great with pork tenderloin. Will be making this again!

    I loved this!! I wanted to try making it on my own after dining on a something similar at a local restaurant. I used fat free half and half, 2 14oz. pkgs of crumbled goat cheese, fat free milk, and 2 large gold potatoes. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly.

    We loved this. I would bake in a deeper dish and add more layers. We used soy milk and it came out beautifully

    A very attractive golden brown dish and it tastes great. I used fat-free half and half and would increase the goat cheese to 1 1/2 cups next time. I also used 3 cloves of garlic. The timing seemed perfect. Very nice dish.
