Potatoes were crispy on the outside and tender on the inside with a delicious buttery, cheesy topping. I added a layer of chopped onions also. A keeper for sure!

I made this dish just for my husband as I am unfortunately not able to enjoy milk products. I added a layer of onions. He LOVED it. He ate every last morsel in the dish and even washed the dishes after (not a regular occurrence!) because, in his words, he wanted me "to have clean dishes to make this again tomorrow". Thank you for the awesome recipe and for making my husband so happy.

I prepared this dish when it first appeared in Taste of Home and I also prepared it again 8/5/14 for a dinner at our chapel. I used 1/2 cup butter, melted, 1 small onion, plus 1 large Vidalia onion, thinly SLICED, rather than grated, 1 tsp. thyme, 1 tsp. salt, 2 cups pre-packaged shredded cheese , 1-1/2 tsp. parsley flakes, but kept the amount of potatoes the same-4 large baking potatoes.I'd used a shallow 2-qt. baking pan, sprayed with PAM non-stick cooking spray! This dish is a simple, yet easy one to put together and yes, the slicing of the potatoes as they are, makes it much less time consuming! Thank you for sharing this recipe, Michelle Beran! Your Mom's recipe is a real keeper for me! delowenstein

This recipe was so simple and so tasty. We loved it! The only thing I did differently was use fresh thyme. You can't go wrong with cheesy potatoes! I will be making this again and again!

This is not a recipe that reheats well, and that's really what makes or breaks a recipe for me. But, if you eat it right after it's been cooked, it's quite good.

I use this recipe so often. It easy and tastes great! I love not having to peel the potatoes and we get tired of having the hashbrown potato casseroles. This one should be on the top of the list.

Excellent! These turned out great - after making them for a fam gathering my SIL asked for the recipe and then when she made them for some friends they wanted the recipe....everyone seems to love this easy recipe. And since you don't have to peel the potatoes it is super easy!
