My family really liked this recipe. I did change a couple of things to suit my taste. I used 1 cup havarti cheese, 1 cup sharp cheddar, and 1 cup Monterey jack, added 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon garlic pepper, and sprinkled Parmesan on top. We just like spicy!
I'm not sure what I was expecting.. but this wasn't it... but my guests said it was good, so either my taste buds were off or they were just being polite!
WOW! This recipe is great AS IS. The Harvarti cheese makes for a nice change from traditional potato recipes. I have made this four times in three weeks and always get rave reviews. Only complaint is that Havarti is somewhat expensive. I found that some major grocery stores also carry it in the dairy isle with the other block cheeses, much less expensive than buying from the deli.
I think I'd try some of the suggestions here...more potatoes, less (or lower fat!) cream...I love cheese and potatoes, but agree, this was a little oily. I'd make it again with modifications.
They came out very tasty. I really liked them. Two things: I don't think I used enough potatoes-it was very oily. Also, this cheese is really expensive. It was $8.58/lb at my supermarket deli. Tasted great though! I will try it again with more potatoes.
This is always a big hit, and very adaptable. I always sprinkle some dill on the layers. Sometimes it curdles, so cook it on a lower temp, cover for a bit, then remove the foil, increase the temp to brown the top.
I've made this recipe 8 times now including every Thanksgiving for the past 4 years. It is extremely simple and always a hit with several people asking for the recipe after eating it!
Love this recipe. Have made it several times, but I actually use a different cheese everytime. I used a chipotle white vermont cheddar which gave it a nice southwestern flavor.
