Home-Style Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

The secret to a good scalloped potato dish is to make sure it has plenty of creamy sauce, which this recipe has. My husband and sons rate this simply delicious potato casserole the "best ever" and request it often.—Christine Eilers, Tulsa, Oklahoma

"This is simply a great way to serve potatoes. I love that it isn't loaded up with a bunch of ingredients...its a delicious creamy potato dish. I did sprinkle a little paprika on top for color."

"Made these potatoes just as the recipe says. Decided to kick it up a notch, so I added 1 lb. of crumbled bacon- adding it before the sauce (between the layers and on top). I used a 9x13 pan, and the potatoes were done in about 55 minutes. Extremely tasty!!! Would make these again in a heartbeat!"

"These deserve more than a 5-star rating. I made them EXACTLY as the recipe stated and they were by far the BEST scalloped potates I have ever eaten! I thought the 5 cups of milk seemed like a lot, but I was wrong, it was perfect. If it helps, 6 cups of thinly sliced potatoes was about 2 pounds of peeled potatoes, that's what I went by and the consistency was perfect! The key is to let them set up for maybe 10 minutes or so after you take them out of the oven, the sauce thickens to perfection... I can't stop eating them!"

"Made this dish first time on Thanksgiving and it was delicious. My guest were quite surprised as no cheese in the dish and was so creamy. Went well with ham, spinach salad and all the extras."
