I've made this a few times now, and I have to say it is pretty bland as written. I decided to make it again the other night and it came out FANTASTIC! We had company over, and everyone, including our toddler, loved it! BUT...I made a TON of changes. However, I will follow my changes from hereon out whenever I make these! Here's what I did if you want to give it a whirl: Sauteed chopped onion and a little minced garlic in 1 TBS or so of butter for a few minutes until the onion began to soften. Added the remaining butter, melted it, then continued step 3 buy adding the flour and so on. For the cheese, I used a blend of SHARP cheddar and a shredded parmesan/romano/asiago blend, adding more cheese than called for. I layered a little sauce in the bottom of the dish, then a layer of potato slices (I like to make them thinner than 1/4", and boil them for 5minutes first, then I don't have to bake them as long), spread another layer of cheese, and so on. I also made a panko/melted butter topping and added that at the last few minutes of baking, uncovered. YUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!
