"I don't understand how anyone gave this recipe 5 stars. It was basically a pan of potatoes in milk. I assume that the flour, milk and cheese are supposed to come together to form a sauce - that never happened. The potatoes tasted fine, but they are NOT scalloped potatoes. I think you are supposed to make the cheese sauce separately and pour it over the sliced potatoes. I will try again using a different recipe."

"I used Youkon Gold potatoes, sliced thin. I also added garlic powder. Next time I will also add Italin seasoning. It turned out great."

"I thought this recipe was really lacking something. I made it for Easter dinner based on the reviews and was disappointed. Guests didn't complain but didn't get rave reviews either."

"Christmas Eve dinner, 2011. Basic recipe followed, but with some changes. Very nice, but found Yukon Gold Potatoes are not a good choice for baking in a casserole, never softened like as done and I baked almost two hours. Yukon Golds fantastic for mashed pots ... yum ... Merry Christmas .. !"

"This is a really good scalloped potatoe recipe. I looked all over to find a nice cheesy one at this one is it! The swiss cheese and onions are really good, but I did use minced dried onion because that's all I had but they softned up and taste wonderful. This is my go to cheesy scalloped potatoe recipe from now on!!"
