Adding More Potatoes to a Cheesy Potato Casserole

I'm truly loving all the info on this site! I made cheesy potatoes and I'm sure I can add more potatoes to correct it, but how do I cook the sliced potatoes to add to an already cooked dish? Thank you for any ideas!

Cook them up separately then slide them under what you made previously :) I do that to stretch dishes when people show up to eat!

Cook more separately and add them gradually until you get the consistency you want

you say sliced potatoes so I'm guessing these may be scalloped potatoes and they turned out just a little too "cheesy"?

Decide how many potatoes you will need and then add another good size potato just to be sure you have enough. Slice your potatoes in the same size as original and microwave them in water (or milk) (to cover) until as done as you like (it should not take very long).

Drain water (reserve milk if used) and start a new dish.
Start with a layer of "new" potatoes and add a thin layer of cheesy potatoes.
Continue with thin layers until you have used your cheesy potatoes or you until you think it will be enough to correct the problem.

You can always add a little more milk (or cream) or thin cheese sauce on top to counteract any dryness .
Let set for a while to soak up the sauce between the layers.

If you just have regular "mixed" sliced potatoes you can modify it to gently mix in the new potatoes.

I would cook exactly how you cooked the potatoes (1 potato per person) before you added the sauce, which I would assume was boiling them, then slice them in the same manner as the existing casserole potatoes. When they are cool add them to the cold casserole, mix gently to cover them in sauce. Then bake all together. Sounds yummy!!

yeah, I would just roast them, put them in a pan with foil on top for 40 - 1 hour, and then integrate them into the rest of the dish

or you could boil them but to me they come out nicer baked
