  • Reviews

  • “I loved this recipe.It is the first time I have ever made scalloped potatoes that were like my mother’s.I’m 71 so it’s been a lonnnnnng time since I had goood scalloped potatoes. Thank you so much.They were easy and tasty and perfect.My mom sometimes added cubed ham or cheese ( or both) to vary our suppers.Thank you, thank you!”

  • “Very tasty!I also added the cheese on top for the last few minutes.Next time, I might cut back a bit on the amount of milk – they were a tiny bit runny for my taste.But all of my guests raved about them, so thank you!”

  • “These were wonderful!!! It took very little time, and the were so creamy…Thank you, Recipezaar.”

  • “Thank you for a classic TRUE what I consider Scalloped Potatoes. I add a little thyme to mine (personal preference), with plenty of pepper; but It’s perfect EVERY TIME!I thought I reviewed this before, but apparently didn’t. Always good and easy to prepare. A True Classic!!”

  • “I’ve been making these for years,originally I got this recipe from the Betty Crocker Cook Book I got in 1974!they are the easy to make.thanks for posting”

  • “I’m not quite sure what I did wrong, based on all the 5-star reviews, but this was incredibly runny, and the potatoes on top just got crunchy. I’ll keep looking for a good scalloped potato recipe. This one just wasn’t it for me.”

  • “Easy and just like momma used to make. Hubby wanted parmasean cheese on top, so I complied. It was nice with the cheese, but really wasnt necessary. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing.”

  • “I loved these potatoes.I made them to go along with pork chops and was worried about them. (mine are usually undercooked and hard)These turned out perfect.I did add lots of extra salt and pepper.(we like lots)Thank you so much for a great basic scalloped potato recipe.I love it.”

  • “This was so much easier than I expected and the results were awesome. I used your recipe as a starting point and went on from there – instead of regular onion, I used a mixture of leek (had one I needed to use or lose) and scallions plus I added a bit of shredded smoked gruyere (yes I know not true scalloped potatoes, but really great) in each layer (about 1 1/4 cup for entire recipe), I divided the butter up into little dots for each layer per another review, plus I added a touch of smoked paprika into my flour, salt and pepper mixture. Because I was going to be serving this with steaks that I was broiling in the oven I cooked in the crock pot like one reviewer suggested. They sure smelled yummy while cooking, and as my crock pot has a glass lid, I could see them while they were cooking – sure looked pretty, but I almost freaked when I took the lid of, they were watery, curdled , and rather yucky looking – Oh well, I stirred them and they seemed blend a bit, so I let them sit a bit with the lid partly on and it made all the difference, they thickened up and they were so good, everyone had 2 helpings, and my Mom even had 3. I can not wait to try the recipe just as written – no cheese and baked – because while the crock pot ended up working fine, missed the crunchy crust you get from the oven. Thank you GransmalsCooking for an awesome recipe.”

  • “absolutely yummy! i just added some garlic, other than that i followed the recipe exactly!”

  • “Very good recipe.I added a bit more onion and seasoning to this recipe.”

  • “Made for Christmas dinner 2009.Substituted goats milk and diary free margarine, all-purpose gluten free flour and topped with Etorki Basque sheeps milk cheese for my son who is gluten-free/dairy free (but can do sheeps/goats milk).Melted in my mouth!Used the full 3 cups of milk, not runny at all.Will definately make again.”

  • “very good and very easy to make.I put some grated cheese on top for the last 5 cooking minutes.My 11 year old son loved these. Nice and comforting food.Will make again.Thankyou!”

  • “This was delish!I have a wheat intolerance so I substituted flour for corn starch.It came out really creamy…I let it bake for an hour…next time Ill let it bake for an hour and 15.Thanks for the recipe :)”

  • “Tastes exactly like my mom’s recipe which we had every Christmas and other special occasions. Sometimes she would add ham, YUM. I am so happy to now have the recipe to enjoy for future use. Thank you!”

  • “MMM…I am eating little bites of this RIGHT NOW as I wait for my dinner guest to get here.It is sooo good!Definitely one to add to the rotation.”

  • “This is a great recipe to have “up your sleeve”!I loved that it was so fast to put together.I didn’t peel the potatoes (there’s vitamins in those skins!), just scrubbed them well and put them through the slicer blade of my food processor.Sprinkle, sprinkle, layer, sprinkle, sprinkle, dob, pour!I didn’t read the recipe carefully enough, however and didn’t preheat the milk.It just took a little longer to cook.I only deducted a star because I prefer the creaminess of a recipe that starts with a white sauce, but it WAS very good and it was fun to try!”

  • “Ive never been abe to make scalloped potatoes nearly as good as my moms, until now. I did some things differently than the recipe, i mixed the flour, milk , salt and pepper all together then i poured some over each layer and i also sprinkled some parm , salt ,pepper and garlic powder on each layer as well. The man loves his garlic. I cooked them in the crock pot on low for 6 hours. They turned out perfect. Nice and creamy.Thanks for posting such a great recipe :)”

  • “I was delighted that this didn’t involve making a white sauce – it was really easy. Unfortunately, the flavor was not wonderful. The natural sweetness of the ingredients was accentuated and not counteracted, which I did not enjoy.”
