How long the patatoes have to be in the oven before putting on the Cheese? IT looks so delicious..thank you.

James Goacher on February 17, 2021

Cheese Au-Cheese or Gratin with-Gratin. Huum! I like to have a bit of cheese in with the milk. Same mix will go well with cauliflower or brocolli.

Heidi D on February 17, 2021

I prefer it when the potatoes are sliced. But I suppose they'll take a little longer to cook.

Love that smile. The food is on point.

Bought one of your cookbooks, made 5 recipes, (Okay…, I had to tweak each just a 'little' for my family's tender tastebuds…) but each received 3 thumbs up and the request to make them again!!! 💚 💛 💜 Hugs!!!!

Different way to do that! I'll try some of those ideas.

Could you add some finely sliced onion?

Monica Wilson on December 25, 2021

I think next time I’ll let them cook covered for another 10-15 minutes. The potatoes were just not quite done with the times listed. I also added just a touch of paprika to give it a bit of a punch.

Mary Key on December 26, 2021

I made this and it’s delicious! 🎄😊 my husband loved it.
