Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made this for Easter as stated except I used 2 very large Idaho potatoes, went jaust a tad heavier on the spices and baked it at 325 degrees along with my ham for 2 hours. It was very good. I am making it again today but I added leftover Easter ham that I froze. I put it in the middle, am using an Italian blend of cheese because that is what I have on hand. I am also marinating the potatoes in white wine. I use Penzeys Tuscan Blend for the Italian spices, Smoked Paparika and dried onion flakes. I'll let you know how the casserole turns out.

will make again. but, will use less italian seasoning

These were incredible! My family loved them and requested them again right away. I didn't use the Italian seasoning or onion powder but chose real onion finely chopped. I put this in with the milk/cheese mixture to sit for a bit while preparing the potatoes and I think that helped make them soft.

I find it very annoying to look at the comments section in these recipes to see how they are reviewed only to find that the reviewer hasn't even tried the recipe. It would be very helpful if you would stick to commenting on the dish after you've tried it unless you have questions concerning the preparations.

Try skipping the italian seasoning, use real chopped onion and marinate the potatoes in a crisp white wine for a few hours or overnight in the refrigerator prior to making.

what flour can be used to make this Gluten-Free?

For the individual wanting to make it for two, just cut the recipe in half or eat the dish for two days. Afterall, it states it serves four! As for me, I love leftovers and this dish has all of my favorites. Potatoes, cheese, and Italian seasoning. I have also lately come to love pepper. Thanks for the great recipe.

Very appetizing recipe the Au Gratin Potatoes. I'll make it!! Thank you, Mr. Food.

I was only interested in a receipe for 2 people so I will try to adjust the amounts, hope it tastes as good as it looks!

I think this recipe would be much better without the Italian Seasoning or Onion Powder; but to each his own.

sounds sooo good, eager to try it. maybe a bit too rich?

This sounds wonderful but how do I make it for a crowd? I do not see any place to change the amount of servings on the recipes.

use Math!

If you are going to be serving let's say 12 people then triple the recipe (18 potatoes instead of 6 for instance); it's not that hard. Just divide the number 4 into the amount of people you are going to be serving..and if you have an odd number let's say 25..then you would multiply the ingredients 7 times so that you would have enough with a small amount left over.

This makes 4 servings. For a crowd, just double or triple the recipe.

Making tonight to have with salmon, asparagus and roasted butternut squash. I used unpealed reds instead of baking potatoes

Next time I won't use Italian seasoning...didn't really care for that flavor in this dish. Other than that, they were very good

I'm making these tonight with chicken. I love all Mr. Food recipes. I make them often and pass the results along to friends. I feel as though I can trust all his recipe's to turn out very good...Thanks.

soonsgood

You forgot to add crubbled crisp bacon ontop. now its, ooh its just right

I'm looking for the Pumpkin Bread Pudding and Can't find it.???

I just googled pumpkin bread pudding and found a ton of them. Happy baking.
