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
"These creamy potatoes taste much better than those made from a boxed mix," assures Betty Menerey from Auburn, Michigan. "It's a tradition to prepare them for family gatherings. I usually double the recipe and use one can of cream of chicken soup and one can of cream of mushroom soup."
“Rich, decadent and indulgent, this creamy recipe is laced with wine and makes a perfect take-along side dish for potlucks or open houses. It looks impressive and is always a huge hit!” Laurie LaClair - North Richland Hills, Texas
Writes Dorothy Bateman from Carver, Massachusetts. "This creamy potato dish is so delicious. You can prepare it in the morning, than put it in the oven later—just be sure the sauce covers the potatoes so they won't turn brown."
Try as I might, I can never follow a recipe exactly, so here's what I came up with when I made a family friend's scalloped potatoes in my own kitchen. They’re so awesome, you just keep going back for more. —Susan Simons, Eatonville, Washington
Valerie Belley of St. Louis, Missouri enhances her pared-down potato dish by adding a layer of sliced onions and sprinkling of crumbled bacon. "They make the potatoes seem more special," she says. "The recipe can easily be doubled for company, too."
One taste of this classic comforting dish and you'll never buy a store-bought box of au gratin potatoes again! The thinly sliced "spuds" cook up tender in no time. Your family will request this many times over.
"AS THE YEARS went by, I added this American side dish to our menu. My children enjoyed the rich cheese flavor, and it enhanced the rest of the meal. I also like these potatoes because I can make them early in the day and then simply heat before serving."
