Easy, quick and Amazing! The family ate them all up. My daughter is always asking for augratin potatoes and since we stopped cooking from a box, this is the first recipe I tried and it's a keeper.

These are delicious scalloped potatoes.I used evaporated milk instead of 2%. It gives them a richer flavor.

Fantastic recipe! I had some potatoes I needed to use up so ended up increasing the amounts of everything but salt by half. I also didn't have shredded cheddar on hand so I used 1/2 Mozzarella and 1/2 American and used whole milk instead of 2%. I can't wait to make this again.

Great recipe! Only modification I made was to use 1 1/2 cups of cheese instead and sprinkle some on top for the last 20 or so minutes of baking. Who doesn't love a cheesy baked crust? Next time I'll use a stronger tasting cheese too like a gruyere or at least sharp cheddar. The regular cheddar didntdidn't have a cheesy enough taste.

Tasty. It was easy to make. Make sure to rinse the potatoes. I can see adding things in it like mushrooms or peas etc.

Can I do everything but the baking the day before or will that screw up cheese?

This is a great recipe that can be tweaked for your personal taste. I have altered the cheeses and generally add paprika on top.
