I took this to a family reunion and got rave reviews! I did change a couple of things though. Instead of potatoes I used frozen hash browns (32 oz bag) and 2 fresh containers (10 oz each) of Alfredo sauce. I probably added a little more swiss and parmesan than called for but it was great! Read More

These were okay but I do not think I would make them again. Maybe it is the taste of jarred alfredo sauce. I tried adding a little cayenne pepper to give it some zing but that didn't even help it. The base recipe is okay but I would add some cheddar mayb or tope with bacon. Read More

This dish was delicious and went a long way. The milk really brings out those onions though I might use less next time. Read More

I was intrigued with this recipe, so I had to try it. Part of my job is to create interesting and new recipes and I really liked the basis of this one. I gave it 5 * because of the changes I added to it. I par boiled my potatoes whole for about 15-20 min. Just until fork goes in fairly easy when tested. Cooled completely. I used klondike gold potatoes. I used really large ones. I used Bertolli alfredo in the jar. Used 2 jars because my potatoes filled a 13x9 dish pretty full. So I doubled all the ingredients listed. I didn't use the onion because too many in the family don't like them. I added mined garlic about a tsp. Added italian seasoning. I don't measure but it was a good size pinch. Along with the parsely. Did'nt add any salt because of the salty cheeses. Added a lot of black pepper and cayenne. Added a bit more swiss and fresh grated parm.than called for. Baked about an hour. 15 minutes before I took it out I topped it with more swiss and parm and sprinkled with panko crumbs and stuck it under the broiler. Everybody raved about these at our Easter dinner! As far as I was concerned it was the best part of the meal! Thanks for posting! Read More

Tried this recipe for an elegant side dish with Chicken. They stuck to the dish pretty good even tho it was sprayed well so you have to watch them on that. We liked them but I would add maybe a bit more Parmesan than I did. I also covered the dish with foil for the first hour then removed it for the last 15 minutes & sprinkled Paprika on top for a little added color. Read More

These were very very good. I used one of the other suggestions of using 6 potatoes and cutting the milk in half because I used an 8x8 dish. I also added garlic powder and used pizza cheese instead of swiss. The only thing is next time I'd let them bake a lot longer. They weren't as tender as I would have liked. Read More

I made this for a church potluck with a few adaptations so I could use items I had on hand. I used shredded pizza blend cheese and a light alfredo sauce from a jar. I added a liberal sprinkling of liquid smoke flavoring. I baked covered for the first hour and a quarter then sprinkled more cheese over the top and browned it uncovered for about 10 more minutes. It came out perfect! Keeping this recipe for sure. Read More

I love this recipe! My boyfriend requests it at least once a week. I change it up now and then varying the type of sauce or replacing things with what I have in the house but it comes out fantastically every time. It's become a bit of a signature dish for company. Thank you! Read More

Okay I took a little bit of everyones suggestions and did the following: Use pizza blend cheese to replace swiss cheese. For 8x8 use 6 potatoes and cut milk in 1/2. Sprinkle some liquid smoke add 1 tsp. of garlic powder and cook at least 1 1/2 hours. It came out wonderful and I wish I had followed anothers advice to sprinkle cheese on top the last 10 minutes of cooking. Was not disapointed with this one. Read More

Very tasty. I made a few changes due to what I didn't have at home. Left out the swiss cheese and had to sub sour cream and chicken broth for the milk and alfredo. I then added a little flour to thicken it up. Read More
