My DH made these potatoes for dinner the other night and we were very (pleasantly)surprised with how well they turned out! My DH did make some changes (as suggested by other reviewers); he added all the cheddar cheese called for, but also added two Kraft cheese slices to the mix. As well, he did not layer the ingredients, but rather just mixed them all together with salt, pepper, cayenne (about 1/2 tsp) and some garlic powder (2 tsp). Lastly, he added about 1/4 cup of milk to allow for a creamier consistency. In the end, we thought they were great and we will make again...the only other thing we will change is that we will add a lot more onion (1 medium would be good in my opinion).


We've had this recipe in our family for years. Instead of the shredded cheese, we use Velveeta. It makes a huge difference. It's an excellent, quick side dish.


This was a quick and easy recipe. I added a small amount of milk and used a mixture of Velveta & shredded cheddar cheese. This was very good and tasted alot like cheesy scalloped potatoes. Mine were done in 18 minutes.
