"Great recipe! This is my go-to recipe for scalloped potatoes. I add some onion powder to the sauce for extra flavor."

"we made these for dinner the other night after not having scalloped potatoes for a very long time and we were very disappointed. Very bland. Had to use some seasonings for flavor. Sorry."
