    Can you assemble this ahead of time and bake later?

    I read several Au Gratin Potato recipes before I settled on this one, but I made a few adjustments:<br/><br/>* Cooked onions until translucent to keep the flavor more delicate<br/>* Used King Arthur Gluten Free Multipurpose Flour (Celiac in our family)<br/>* Substituted ground white pepper rather than black pepper<br/>* Added 2 cloves minced garlic<br/>* Added 1/2 tsp paprika (US traditional, not hot or Hungarian)<br/>* Used Simply Potatoes Homestyle Slices as a way to save prep and cooking time<br/>* Decreased cooking time to 35 minute

    This is a great Au Gratin Potato dish, nobody could even guess it was low fat, another thing is that I almost always have every ingredient so easy to put together too. There is the problem of over eating this dish though, we probably only got 5 servings. Thanks for the recipe!

    YUMMY!!!!!!!!!! I made this for our Christmas dinner. My only alterations from the recipe (because I hate measuring): heavy on the pepper and added a bit more reduced fat cheese. next time, I might add an extra onion and some garlic, just because. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe Kittencalskitchen.

    Really, really great recipe. I cut the servings in half and want to reiterate that people should also cut the cooking times in half! I used a bit more cheese than the recipe indicated and so added an extra point, but still well, well worth it -- and super filling! I'm excited to make these again. Also, even if you're not on Weight Watchers -- who cares? It's delicious!

    I love this simple recipe. I cut it in half, as the first time I made it for the 2 of us we had leftovers for a few meals (not a bad thing). We use 1% milk, so that what was used, added a little paprika for a pretty finish. It is a favorite.

    We used 1% milk, as that was what was in the house, and some paprika for a pretty finish.
