Although it is hard to beat having classic mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving time, this cheesy potato dish is so good that it is my new favorite potato dish.

Oooo cheese and potatoes in the same dish? It was heaven!

This is truly a classic recipe, yet something we don't normally have at our Thanksgiving table. That may change this year! Heck, I need to make it this weekend - forget waiting until then. Who says you need a special occasion to enjoy all the cheesy, potato-y goodness of an au gratin recipe as delicious as this?!

I think this was my favorite au gratin recipe that I've tasted to date. It had the perfect amount of cheese and the potatoes were cooked to perfection. I'd choose these over regular mashed potatoes any day.

These were so much fun to make! You can't go wrong with a cheese-and-potatoes combo.

Just the right amount of cheese! These tasted fantastic.

This is just how my Mom use to make them and they are great, I've been trying to get this reciepie for a long time now, I will be including this in my Sunday dinners from now on.
