"Amazing !!! It's a hit every time. I use almond milk instead of 2 %."

"Just made these potatoes last night. Used a little less salt as recommended and used the cheese I had on hand...shredded Colby & Monterey Jack. All other directions I followed as given. The result...the best au gratin potatoes I have ever made or tasted. I never go wrong with a Taste of Home recipe."

"Good recipe; can use the cheese mixture on Mac n cheese too. I made mine gluten and lactose free by using gluten free flour mix and lactaid milk and added more butter, melted it and poured some on top with extra cheese before baking. Great left over with eggs..... Garlic and onion powder for extra flavor."

"Perfect. I added about a half tsp of thyme. I also used skim milk because that's what I had, and yellow potatoes instead of russets. Very good."
