Reviews for Sharp Cheddar Scalloped Potatoes

"Our new favorite! As always, I changed the recipe a bit. I substituted black pepper for white pepper, milk for half-and-half, and 4 oz Philly for white cheddar, and used 8 oz shredded sharp cheddar. I also mixed the cheeses into the sauce with a whisk to make it easier. Creamy and delicious!"
"I don't know what I did wrong, but the first problem was all the oil. Not sure from the cheese or the Pam. Is the sauce suppose to seep down to the bottom? I think I might try adding a layer of sauce on each layer of potatoes. Any suggestions?"
"Really delicious, this is a keeper for sure!"
"These are the best scalloped potatoes I have ever eaten. I did tweak the recipe a little by adding more cheeses. I also add 11/2 cups Monterey jack, & 11/2 cups hot pepper jack, & 11/2 cups mozzarella cheese, plus I use about 7- 10 lbs. potatoes & add more of everything else on the list. I have to fix these at every family function now as I get so many request for them now. For her Christmas Eve dinner today, I had to make my baby sister a big pan for her dinner. She called me later & said everyone loved them! Really like the addition of the extra cheeses, but they're good even without that! Thanks for the recipe. It is my go to recipe now!"
"What a fabulous recipe! Will definitely add to my recipe box! Served these with meatloaf. Super combination!"
