The secret to a good scalloped potato dish is to make sure it has plenty of creamy sauce, which this recipe has. My husband and sons rate this simply delicious potato casserole the "best ever" and request it often.—Christine Eilers, Tulsa, Oklahoma

"This is simply a great way to serve potatoes. I love that it isn't loaded up with a bunch of ingredients...its a delicious creamy potato dish. I did sprinkle a little paprika on top for color."

"Made these potatoes just as the recipe says. Decided to kick it up a notch, so I added 1 lb. of crumbled bacon- adding it before the sauce (between the layers and on top). I used a 9x13 pan, and the potatoes were done in about 55 minutes. Extremely tasty!!! Would make these again in a heartbeat!"
