  • “Simple to put together and tastes wonderful, DH said fantastic potatoes. I used half and half instead of whipping cream and could only fit 5 sliced potatoes in my pan. Used kosher salt and I think that was a bit to heavy for these potatoes. Next time I will use regular table salt or none at all. The only problem I had was the half and half bubbled over in my oven while baking. I will put this dish on a cookie tray or use a baking dish with higher sides next time. Thank you Sharlene for posting this recipe!”
