Easy recipe, taste is good but very, very oily! I followed the recipe exactly but way too much grease. Unfortunately, I probably would not make this again.

I made this recipe and could have just eaten it with a vegetable. It was so good. I didn't even need any meat to go along with it. Thumbs up!

Maybe microwave the potatoes a bit - or bake a bit longer.

Love it, I wish the was a little different. Maybe make enough sauce to put on each layer. defiantly great with the two types of sharp cheddar. I decided not to peal my white potatoes and it came out great.

Delicious!! Needed to bake probably an extra 5-10 minutes. Potatoes were JUST a bit firm. Great flavor and the smell coming from the oven is to die for!!

Very good recipe! And easy to follow! I think next time I will layer the sauce instead of having it all on top

This will be my go to recipe for potatoes. So very good! I greased the dish with butter. I didn't change the recipe at all. Delicious just as written.

Good recipe for potatoes. Don't use any Pam in it or it would be oily. That's what dukeoflilac did to only get it a two star rating. Leave out the Pam and it's a better recipe.

Delicious! I do want to know why dukeoflilac commentator asked about PAM. There was nothing in this recipe saying to spray anything with PAM that I saw. Maybe there was when she posted, but it's not here now and with all this cheese, no need to coat the pan with any oil. These are awesome Scalloped Potatoes! I did ad some shredded colby/jack and philly cheese because it melts so well and tastes great and some garlic powder, but otherwise followed the recipe.
