"It does need longer to cook even in a convection oven. Also, I substituted 1/8 tsp of smoked paprika and put it right into the cheese sauce instead of on top."

"I have made these many times and love them. it is the perfect amount for my husband and I, as the kids don't care for this type of potatoes. I have doubled the recipe for company and leftovers. I used red potatoes tonight and the cooking time was perfect."

"Excellent flavor! I've made this several times. It needs to cook for about 1 hr 20 min. though. I added diced ham to mine and sprinkled extra cheese on top last night and it made an excellent main-dish casserole."

"My Husband's fav side is scalloped and he was impressed with these! Although I too half to agree it did take over an hour ..."

"Very good potatoes. I agree with the other comments and had to cook this for well over an hour."

"The sauce that goes with this is very good. However I cut my potatoes as thin as I could manage and I had to cook it for over an hr. I uncovered it at 25 minutes and it had to go in for another 40."

"this was easy to prep and turned out good. i still prefer the scalloped potatoes made with mushroom soup over this version. i doubled the recipe and maybe didn't cut the potatoes thin enough because the cooking time ended up being well over an hour."
