"These potatoes were very rich and creamy but the Parmesan cheese kind of made them taste like potato buds. Not what I expected. They might be better if there was another kind of cheese mixed in, in addition to the Parmesan."

"This is the best potato bake I have ever had. I added pepper to the half & half mixture because I don't think potatoes should ever be without pepper. It turned out great. I also used a 26 oz. package of potatoes, because that's all I had. Next time I would double the potatoes. They only came out about a half inch thick using the 26 oz. package. I will definitely make this again!"
