This recipe was so yummy. There wasn't a lot of liquid remaining in the pot after cooking the potatoes, so when I melted the cheese I didn't think the consistency would be like a sauce, but surprisingly it was perfect. Especially when combined with the heavy cream. Next time I might even use less cream, maybe 1-2 tablespoons instead to make the sauce less liquidy. Delicious flavor, all you need is salt and pepper.

Superb recipe. I added a little regular cheese with the white cheddar and it was perfect. Next time I will try substituting the heavy cream with half in half, for a lighter alternative.

Scalloped potatoes was one of my favorite dishes when I was a kid. This was my first time making it as an adult, and I used my pressure cooker. It turned out extra cheesy, which is wonderful. The potatoes literally cooked for 1 minute in the pot. It's like magic. I didn't even need to use salt and pepper at the end. It was perfect without it.

I love how cheesy and delicious this recipe came out. Cooking potatoes has never been easier, thanks to the pressure cooker. The white Cheddar cheese sauce was perfect. Eight ounces was more than enough cheese too, I actually used a little less.

Really tasty, I just wish there was a healthier alternative to the heavy cream. I wanted to try half and half, but I wasn't sure how it would turn out. Maybe next time when I am in the kitchen I will experiment with it.
