This dish is special enough for holidays, but I don't reserve it only for them. It turns ANY day into a special one!

I've been making this recipe for years! Was so sad when I misplaced my recipe card. Thank goodness for internet searches!

Love the thyme in this recipe which I always use more potatoes to increase the servings! I also use the entire 12 oz. package of bacon, leave the skin on the potatoes, and add a couple tablespoons of parmesan cheese. Absolutely amazing!

My whole family give this a thumbs up! They really liked it. However, I would increase the seasonings as previous reviewers have recommended. This is basically a creamed potato recipe, which is a nice change from other ways of preparing the spud. Will be making this again.

SUBLIME!!! It was amazing!! I tripled the thyme, mustard, and doubled the salt and pepper. Instead of dairy product I used chicken soup, and to replace the bacon, I used simulated bacon bits (2 tbsps). It was truely a hit!!!

A Thanksgiving hit! I substituted freshly chopped parsley (about a tablespoon) for the thyme.

My husband, adult daughter, and myself all loved this dish! I didn't have half and half so I used light cream, I did add about 1/2 cup grated Parmesan and a heaping tablespoon of minced garlic. I will certainly make this again.

Bad, bad stuff. Un-palatable, insipid and downright gross.One could have added much to this dish with a little forethought.

Had no taste what so ever...Only flavor to come through was the dijon mustard. Was embarrased because I made it for company
