Everyone loves these scalloped potatoes. This dish is my own creation - it's a combination of three different recipes! Besides tasting good, this dish is foolproof to make, and the ingredients won't separate during baking.

"My family loved it. I used shredded cheddar cheese instead of the processed (velveeta?) cheese. My picky 12 year old girl had seconds! It's a keeper and they said, "Yes! Make this again mom!""

"I have no desire to make this dish. Mayo, disgusting (and I like mayo...to the point of making my own). I would assume that processed cheese sauce may be Velveeta, cheese whiz, or condensed cheddar soup. This seems more like a recipe for people who don't know how to cook and don't have a desire to develop skill. I'm sure many people like it, but it just isn't for me."

"Wow this turned out SO good! I thought it was going to be bland when I made it but after it cooked it was seasoned perfectly, very tasty, I wouldn't change anything. I didn't pre cook the potatoes just cooked it a little longer in the oven, I will make this often."
