Reviews for Scalloped Potatoes with Cheese
"Has anyone tried Durkee Onion rings instead of bread crumbs?"
"I'm trying to figure out what I did wrong. I followed the ingredients however it ended up being VERY watery. Still great flavor but not creamy at all."
"I did quite a few additions, but used ths as a base. I added 1 tsp chicken base flavoring, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp tumeric and 1 tsp italian seasoning. I also didn't use the bread crumbs on top, or green peppers (didn't have) and added chopped ham that needed to be used up. I added shredded colby jack to each layer and baked for 55 minutes covered and uncovered for 15 min. Absolutely delicious!"
"This was very good. I will go to this recipe when I want to make scalloped potatoes."
"Double cheese layer and cook with recipe... don't use bread crumbs"
"Wonderful! Wonderful! The only difference I made was to forget the bread crumbs and butter for the top and added a can of cream style corn instead. Loved it - really creamy and delicious! Old fashioned taste."
"This was awful! Very dry and absolutely no flavor at all"
"I have several scalloped potato recipes that I use in rotation. They are a bit different from each other. I think this one is my personal favorite."
"Excellent, rich, creamy and delicious. You can't go wrong with these potatoes. And, they are so easy to make. Great sidedish!"
