The first time I tasted this casserole was at a church supper, and I immediately asked around to find out who made it. I asked the cook to share her recipe, and it has become one of my family's most-requested dishes.

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."
“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
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."
I'm a pastor's wife, and I often find myself cooking for large groups. I first put together Potato Onion Supreme for a wedding shower dinner when our organist's son got married. Afterward, I had three requests for the recipe!
This dish is fast and easy, so it's nice for adding a festive touch to a Sunday dinner. But it's equally at home at church potlucks or Grange socials.
After our memorable lakeside ceremony, guests gathered with Creighton and me at a nearby hall for our reception. A dear friend, Sharon Kramer, fixed good home-style food. Her tempting menu included these delicious potatoes. They're special, but made with convenient canned soup.
