I made this recipe for Easter dinner. I had always been more of an augratin fan, but this recipe made me reconsider...I loved it! And even the reheated leftovers were good!

This is excellent! If I'm in a time crunch, I add about 1 teaspoon minced, dehydrated onion to the sauce instead of chopping fresh (then I only have to layer the potatoes and sauce). I find the time listed in the recipe to be a bit off. After 35-40 minutes, the sauce is still a bit on the soupy side, and the potatoes not quite done, so I remove the cover and bake them about 15 minutes more. Just the little extra time makes the sauce creamy instead of soupy, and the potatoes tender.
