    This was my first time ever making scalloped potatoes and it was a hit! My husband loved them and had the leftovers for breakfast! I doubled everything for the cheese sauce mixture because I always love extra sauce! Also, I mixed additional seasonings (salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder) to my potatoes and mixed in a bowl before laying out in the casserole dish. I also took the advice of another user and covered the potatoes with foil. I cooked them for 45 mins and then cooked for another 15 minutes uncovered and then let sit in the oven (turned off) for another 5 minutes. It came out perfect!!! I will definitely be making this recipe again and again!

    Wow so good, just make sure you remember to salt the potatoes. After 45 minutes my potatoes weren’t done but I put tin foil over it (to avoid burnt sides) and left it in for 10 more minutes and it was perfect

    Will be a go to side for steak or ribs. Potatoes came out perfectly soft and creamy.

    It's perfect with any kind of potato, and I used a bread pan to make it, but it tastes amaziinggg! also, if you have no fresh garlic, just use to tbsp of garlic powder. 100% great for a family meal, well, that's what my family says :)

    I only added a bit more garlic just because my group loves garlic. This was the second time I have made this. Definitely a crowd pleaser. Will be making these again.

    The cheese mixture made for a weird combination. It was ok. Tasted a little off.

    It was good, but the cheese on top got way too brown. Consider covering then browning the cheese just a little at the end.
