Ultimate Scalloped Potatoes

My husband found this recipe when I called and informed him we were going to have guests for dinner. This tasty variation on traditional scalloped potatoes is dressed up with garlic, Swiss cheese and Parmesan cheese. -Glenda Malan, Lake Forest, California

    I added diced onion and sliced cremini mushrooms to the potatoes; and used Mozzarella, Romano, and Parmesan cheeses in the sauce, along with a bit of parsley. WOW... paired great with Italian-style meatloaf!

    I found this recipe a long time ago in the magazine. I add a little thyme and dijon mustard, especially if serving it with ham.

    Just made this for Easter dinner...will pop into the oven an hour before dinner. I’ve been making this for several husband and I love it. I frequently add 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.....
