For old-fashioned flavor, try these scalloped potatoes from Elaine Kane of Keizer, Oregon. They cook up tender, creamy and comforting. "Chopped ham adds a hearty touch," she relates.

"Should of figured this was a mistake but I had used a similar recipe from Taste of Home. Might make a good potato soup, there is no thickening agent potatoes were very soupy. Ended up scooping potato's out and making a quick roux with the liquid in pot and threw in oven for about 45 min. Actually quite tasty after that although I did had a few extra seasonings. Might try again but would definitely use some flour or something to thicken it up or do another search see if I can find the original recipe."

"These were okay, but didn't have as much flavor as I'd hoped. I did like the convenience of using the slow cooker but if I make these again, I would definitely use a slow-cooker liner; the potatoes really stuck to the inside of the pot."

"This is a perfect recipe for my family! Son doesnt like cheese at all, and was looking for a recipe that was filling and would use left over ham. Voila! here it is!! Other reviewers are correct, scalloped potatoes do not have cheese, au gratin does :) Thank you for posting this!"

"Dear cooks, I haven't tried this yet, but I will. Has anyone made it with just the oldfashioned cheesy white sauce? I don't use canned soup in my cooking anymore since I read the salt content. Most of these soups have over 800 mgs of salt?"

"Get a grip rude people. If you were as smart as you think you are you would know that by adding cheese makes them "augratin" potatoes not scalloped so apparently the lady made scalloped potatoes now huh?!"
