    The ultimate old-fashioned scalloped potatoes. I made it for a gathering last night and everyone said that it is the way grandma used to make it. I did layer with onions (cut in rings) sauteed in butter, salt and cooked ham. I don't use the cheese because that is not a true scalloped potato recipe. I also baked it in only two cups of the drained milk along with one cup heavy cream. Otherwise it would have been a little too runny. This grandma is happy to have the authentic recipe on hand!

    Great recipe. I can’t have onions (allergic), so this is a great alternative to “traditional” scalloped potatoes, and I love the cheese. It feeds four hungry adults with some leftovers to go with the baked ham.

    This is THE, hands down, BEST recipe for scalloped potatoes. Really easy too! BUT, I didn't want to pay to $10.00 for Gruyere, so I used Swiss Cheese instead ( 1/4 of the price). Still just perfect. I thought I made really great Scalloped's before, but this is my new permanent recipe.

    These potatoes came out very good. I did not add the entire amount of milk.... I just poured in enough to not quite cover potatoes. I wanted a little more flavor so I sauteed 2 more garlic cloves and added my favorite herb with potatoes....tarragon. Will make again.

    Scalloped potatoes don't have cheese in them.

    Question: For those who have made this dish - can the assembly be done 2-3 hours prior to going into the oven?

      Yeah but don't. Make a recipe that has a roux that adds a creamy sauce to the dish or you'll have boiled potatoes swimming in hot milk with cheese on top. This recipe is a flop.

    My husband liked it because he loves potatoes but all I made was boiled potatoes swimming in hot milk with cheese on top. I suggest adding a roux to add a sauce to this recipe like all other scallop potatoes do.
