  1. I made this tonight to use up some leftover Christmas ham and it was delicious. Everyone went back for seconds, which is always a good sign, especially when two of them are picky eaters. I didn't add the onion because of the picky eaters and used onion powder instead. I also added some dry mustard powder too. This one is a keeper. Thanks Barbara
  2. The only recipe I use. I get compliments when people taste my potatoes for the 1st time. I do a few things differently...I cook the onion in the butter before adding flour and I layer the cheese on the potatoes instead of adding it to the mixture; I find it easier to spread. I always make extra because my family loves these left over.
  3. I made this yesterday to bring to easter dinner at my boyfriends parents (which I had never met before). I ommitted the onion since I do not like them. I added ham, turkey bacon, parmesean cheese to mine also (about 1 cup) and creole seasoning. I also made mine in the crockpot (about 5 hours). i got rave reviews from the entire family. A entire 5 qt crockpot was cleaned out and everyone was asking for more. I will definately keep this recipe and make over and over.
  4. I looked at the recipe and actually laughed! I have made this same one many times just out of my head (or so I thought!) Maybe my white sauce wasn't just right, or whatever. I followed this to the tee and it was so cheesy and creamy. I will absolutely serve this at a dinner party.
  5. LOVED this! I made it with three cans of sliced white potatoes, so the cooking time was a lot less. Was still amazing though.


I enjoy cooking and trying new things which is why I am so pleased to have found this site. I live in Texas but hope to move back to Montana someday.
