Just made this for Easter dinner...will pop into the oven an hour before dinner. I’ve been making this for several years...my husband and I love it. I frequently add onion...today I also added leftover chopped red pepper. Always add fresh Italian parsley. Hadn’t thought about bacon but will try next time as well as different cheeses. I always make a huge dish...cut leftovers into serving size and freeze. Great recipe...thanks for posting.

This has been my all-time favorite scalloped potato recipe since I discovered it in taste of home I think 15 years ago. I usually make it with Italian shredded cheese blend but it's superb with Swiss or with Italian cheeses

I have been making this Ultimate Scalloped Potato recipe since I saw it in the TOH magazine. My husband and I absolutely love it. I follow the recipe and it has always come out great. I have served it to guests who always go back for seconds. Thanks Glenda for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Found this recipe and thought I would try these for my large dinner party. I must say I was extremely disappointed as were all my guests! Even though I mixed the cream, milk, etc. and just brought it to bubbling around the edges...the finished product still curdled and looked gross!Even the flavour was not exceptional and I had added rings of onion and crumbled bacon. I think I will stick to my own recipe of scalloped potatoes. Thanks anyway.....

So awesome-ly delicious! My whole family absolutely loves these. I also add bacon and onions. Portion control goes right out the window when these are on the menu!

These are the best scalloped potatoes, and the only ones I make any more! My daughter LOVES them and asks for them all the time!

These are awesome. I've substituted with other cheeses and had excellent results. I also add sliced onions and crumbled bacon. Yum!!!

I made this recipe as written with one change. I didn't have Swiss cheese so I used cheddar. It was fantastic! I will never make scalloped potatoes with cream soup from a can ever again. This recipe is easy and delicious!
