Reviews for Cheesy Potato Bake
"I prepared this dish when it first appeared in Taste of Home and I also prepared it again 8/5/14 for a dinner at our chapel. I used 1/2 cup butter, melted, 1 small onion, plus 1 large Vidalia onion, thinly SLICED, rather than grated, 1 tsp. thyme, 1 tsp. salt, 2 cups pre-packaged shredded cheese , 1-1/2 tsp. parsley flakes, but kept the amount of potatoes the same-4 large baking potatoes.I'd used a shallow 2-qt. baking pan, sprayed with PAM non-stick cooking spray! This dish is a simple, yet easy one to put together and yes, the slicing of the potatoes as they are, makes it much less time consuming! Thank you for sharing this recipe, Michelle Beran! Your Mom's recipe is a real keeper for me! delowenstein"
"This recipe was so simple and so tasty. We loved it! The only thing I did differently was use fresh thyme. You can't go wrong with cheesy potatoes! I will be making this again and again!"
"Yummy! Everyone loved it. It is easy and simple."
"This is not a recipe that reheats well, and that's really what makes or breaks a recipe for me. But, if you eat it right after it's been cooked, it's quite good."
"This has been a family favorite for years!"
"I use this recipe so often. It easy and tastes great! I love not having to peel the potatoes and we get tired of having the hashbrown potato casseroles. This one should be on the top of the list."
"yum! everyone loved this recipe i made it with melt in your mouth meatloaf a terrific meal thanks"
"I love garlic - so I added some garlic powder on the top before baking. And used Colby Cheese. Great Recipe!"
"Greatest potato recipe ever. My husband can't stop eating them!"
