2 stars as written because its a good base, 5 stars with changes. As others noted, the idea of giant slimey onions in the middle did not sound appetizing, so I did the following: finely chopped one red onion with 4 cloves of garlic in the chopper, then melted 3 T of butter in a pan, sauteed onions and garlic. Added 3T of flour to this, then added the milk and cheddar/montrey jack mix as well as fresh grated parm [about 1 c. of the cheddar and 1/2 c of parm cheese], one chicken buillion cube, a dash of red pepper flakes, juice from one half lemon, 1 tspn white pepper, 2 T black pepper, and 3/4 tspn salt. This was my sauce. I placed half the potatoes in a 2 quart buttered dish, then poured half the sauce on top, topped this with some bread crumbs. Added another layer of potatoes, the remaining sauce, and topped with buttered bread crumbs. baked covered, then uncovered the last 15 minutes to brown. I realize this is basically a different recipe, but I did use this recipe as a base and so I rated it as written.
