Mother knew these rich, hearty potatoes are excellent on a cold day since the cayenne pepper warms you up. Once the first of us eight kids picked up this dish, it didn't hit the table again until we all had big servings. -Helen Vail, Glenside, Pennsylvania

"I thought this dish was very good as is and there are so many variations that can be made to it. I added ham and onions to mine. I also mixed the butter and flour in with the soup and milk. Much easier to build the recipe that way. Next time I will cover with foil the first hour then uncover for the last 20 minutes."

"I made this the first time but added bacon bits. It was pretty good. The second time I sub'd chedder cheese soup for the mushroom and added a bit of cheddar cheese to the layers. My family demolished it though it would have been better with bacon. I'll make this again and again."

"To add my 2 cents: This dish was well-received at Christmas dinner. I put in too much red pepper, will adjust for next time. Easy to make and delicious!"
