How to Make It
Cut potatoes into 1/8-inch-thick slices; set aside.

Add potato slices; bring to a boil over medium heat, and cook, stirring gently, 15 minutes or until potato slices are tender. Spoon into a lightly greased 11- x 7- x 1 1/2-inch baking dish; sprinkle with cheeses.
Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
This was a perfect Thanksgiving side dish! I used unpeeled baby white potatoes sliced in the food processor and put half of the cheese in after spreading half of the potatoes in a 2 1/2 quart baking dish. Sprinkled the other half on top and baked until bubbly. Delicious!
I tracked this recipe down after having it at a pot luck. It was a big hit when I made it at home. I used the leftovers in some seafood chowder and got another family favorite out of it. Now I have to make double batches so there are enough leftovers to make the chowder.
I agree with the previous reviewer, I was surprised at the blandness of this recipe. The only thing I really tasted was a small kick of red pepper. I still gave it 4 stars b/c 2 out of 4 guest loved it.
This was my contribution to Christmas dinner, which was ham. It was a hit with the family, although personally I thought it was bland. I thought the cayenne would give it a bit of a bite, but I couldn't even tell it was there (and it was fresh, too). Salt and pepper added at the table was a big improvement, and I will add more (also cayenne) to the recipe if I make it again. It was more work than I would put into an everyday dish, but fine for a special occasion. I prepared it a day ahead and just had to pop it in the oven the next day.
