    Really bland. The ingredients sounded so good too. I followed the recipe as written. Lots of leftovers and no one wanted to take them home. Won't be making this again.

    Bland. Funny texture. I've got better potato recipes. I won't be using this one again. Had to throw the whole thing out.

    This is an awesome recipe! I love the ease of it, and the ability to keep the oven free. I definatly would make this again. My only thing I have done differently is A) more pepper B) microplaned the garlic and C) to speed up cooking time I have boiled the potatoes a few minutes to get the cooking process started.

    I added ham to the layers for a main dish. Turned out a little dry, so the next time, I'll increase the milk to 1 cup.

    This was very bland. Really needs to be spiced up.

    I was not at all impressed with this. I followed recipe as written - bland city! Thank goodness, I had some shredded cheddar cheese on hand - it saved the day.
