Augratin Potatoes

This recipe is from my Sister-n-law Debbie. This is her famous Augratin potatoes she makes during the holidays and parties or family gatherings. Every time I make them I always wonder what she will say, because yes she will comment every time about how they come out. I am happy to say I have mastered and added to this recipe. Because you know cream cheese just adds that little punch.

I add 1/2 block of cream cheese to the recipe when I have it on hand. If not it still turns out delicous. You can cut this recipe in half when making for a side dish with dinner.
