Golden Au Gratin Potatoes Recipe

During the many years I've made this creamy potato dish, I haven't run into anyone who didn't like it! The sauce is very flavorful and just the right consistency—not too thick or too thin. For a family dinner or potluck dish, this casserole is always a winner. —Lavonne Hartel Williston, North Dakota

"Best cheesy potato casserole EVER! My family loved it, the cornflake topping gives it a crunch. I halved this recipe and it easily served our family of 6, with more left over. Instead of using condensed chicken soup, try making a white sauce with some chicken broth. I used 4 1/2 cups of shredded potatoes instead of frozen hash brown potatoes. (I did halve the recipe.) It was great, will make again."

"This is easy and very tasty. My guests went back for thirds. I added more very sharp cheese and used Panko crumbs instead of corn flakes. Two suggestions: mash down the potatoes a litte as they tended to be a bit too hard and put under the broiler the last few minutes for a nice crusty top."

"This is THE BEST cheesy potato recipe I have made or tasted. I take this to every potluck and always receive compliments. Very easy to prepare. I usually omit the topping-just a personal preference. It has been a favorite since 2002."
