    The BEST!!! The only way to make scalloped potatoes as far as we are concerned. Deserves more than 5-stars. This produced a sumptuous creamy cheese sauce and the bacon-onion add WOW for flavor. The potatoes turned out very tender. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe.

    The ultimate in comfort food. These were fantastic. The bacon-onion-potatoes mixed with the creamy cheese sauce. Oh, somebody stop me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Sinfully delicious!! Thanks again Nurse Di.

    This is the way I remember my Gran making scalloped potatoes. I tried them out on my family and I was Queen for a day. Very tender potatos with the added goodness of bacon and onion flavors. Topped off with that of so luscious creamy cheese sauce. Nothing better in my opinion. Thanks.

    I don't know what I can add that hasn't already been said. These potatoes are the bomb!!! So tender they melt in your mouth. The creamy cheese sauce and bacon will make you weak. Reminds me of simple down home cooking like my mom used to make. Just wonderful. Thanks.

    Flavorful dish, NurseDi! I left the peels on for added nutrition and since I didn't have sour cream in my fridge, I used some Helluva Good Ranch Dip! Nice side dish.

    Great recipe, I was short on time so I sliced and boiled my potatoes until they were soft, then I prepared everything else the same, I just threw my cheese on and popped it in the oven, this took about 30 min. to get perfectly done.. And I didn't have to mess with foil. I also substituted my bacon with turkey bacon cut up, turned out great, Thanks!

    I thought the sauce was a little too thick, so I added a little milk. Next time, I think I'll mix it in with the potatoes, instead of on top, Also, I used shredded Swiss Cheese & SPAM cubes instead of bacon & cheddar cheese...VERY TASTY!!!

    This was SOOOOOO GOOD!!! I used 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup and 1 cup of Plain yogurt instead of sour cream. Inorder to make it a full meal, I took out the bacon and added Smoked sausage (during the last 20 minutes of baking) DELISH! THANKS!!

    Made this tonight, but doubled the recipe, and the cooking time was quite abit,(my bad) but other than that it was very very good. "BIL" ate 2 big plate-fuls! We'll definetly make this again for sure! Thanks for sharing. (instead of bacon, we used ham)

    Great side dish along side a brisket I fixed last weekend. I did substitute cream of celery as my kids don't care for mushroom but it still had a wonderful flavor. I like the addition of the bacon. I had to cook it an extra 30 minutes but it came out great. Thanks
