Reviews for Never-Fail Scalloped Potatoes
"I used cream cheese and sour cream and it wont taste so floury if you make Roux butter and flour and I make it in a small ball and fridge it...small pebbles of this with thicken anything ...."
"This was very good. I added a little worhesthshire sauce and a little sambol. Served up very nicely. Janet. VFE"
"I found this needs the sauce doubled and a longer cooking time,but get that right and these always get rave reviews! It's my go-to scalloped tater recipe."
"Easy to make and very good. My family loved them. Warm, comfort food."
"A real winner! This was a very easy recipe to follow and prepare. Only adjustment I would recommend is to "make more". The leftovers were just as good as the first day."
"This is simple and delicious and oh so creamy. I threw in some Velveeta cheese cubes instead of the cheddar cheese. Yummy!"
"Oh my goodness, this recipe is delish ! Doubled the sauce and then added 1/2 cup more milk. For cheese try some grated pepper jack along with cheddar, it's not too spicy hot. I always par-boil my potato slices first and saute' the onions, well worth the extra touches. This goes well with a meatloaf or ham, even pork chops or roast, just add a green vege or salad. Double the recipe for left-overs they are even good with scrambled eggs for breaky."
"I made these for my husband's birthday dinner. They were delicious and very easy to put together. I will definitely make them again!"
"Great for large gatherings Bland yes but added a package of hidden valley ranch mix and perked up the flavor !"
"Scalloped potatoes are made without cheese, I may never find a TRUE scalloped potatoe recipe"
