"It was great! I tweaked it a bit. I did colby jack and cheddar and added dried chives and garlic powder. I omited the breadcrumbs. I will definitely make this again! Thanks for the recipe!"

I doubled the recipe for a big dinner party and it came out great. I had no issue with cooking time. Just be sure you slice the potatoes thin enough.
