This recipe represents my philosophy of cooking to its best - cooking with love. A good test to see if you have enough cream in the recipe is to gently press on the top of the layers (once finished). If there is enough cream, you should see it coming out on the sides, but not overflowing. Letting the au gratin rest is very important . . . even though it is so delicious that you would want to jump right in. If you like onions, slice thinly and add in between the layers. —Theresa Danos, Hyde Park, New York

"This is a great side dish for the holidays. It goes great with ham. It is very rich and you can definitely taste the lemon. We all loved it at our house but this dish may not appeal to everyone."

"My family loved these potatoes!! I made a double batch for Easter and they were a big hit. I divided the cream and poured some on each layer. Can't wait to make them again! I will add a little bit of garlic powder the next time."
