"I clipped this recipe from our local newspaper quite some time ago and I have been making it ever since. It goes great with Baked Ham but try it with any other meat that strikes your fancy."

  1. I prepared these for an Easter dinner I was attending (and sacrificed a piece of my finger slicing the potatoes on a mandolin!)and really liked the look of the recipe. However, I was surprised to find the taste pretty bland for my taste. I also added a thinly sliced onion with the layers of sauce and potatoes and even that didn't add much zip. Thanks for posting, however.
  2. These potatoes were fantastic. I didn't have herbed cream cheese so I just used regular. It still turned out great. I will be making this one again. Thanks bert.


I love to cook and so I am thrilled that I found recipezaar. I work as an educational assistant in a food school so I am around food all day long. I have four children, three of which have already flown the coop so to speak but I still have my 'baby' at home. (He's 21). I am lucky in that I have my summers off so I spend a lot of time trying new recipes and catching up on my reading. I also play soccer in a ladies league to stay in shape.
