Reviews for Parmesan Potatoes Au Gratin
"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."
"First bite was delicious, but it was so rich I couldn't eat much."
"Throw away dish...creme curled..just not a good recipe.."
"I took this new recipe to my friend's home for a family dinner. It received a 5 star rating. Everyone had two helpings."
"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."
"I made a double batch to take to an Easter potluck... not a drop left. Very easy to make and will certainly do it again"
"The flavor was good. Next time I would mix everything together so the cheese is blended with the potatoes instead of just in the layers."
"Too much parmesan cheese. Made these for Easter dinner and no one cared for them. Very grainy in texture and overwhelmed with the taste of thyme."
"Too much lemon peel!"
