Reviews forCreamy Scalloped Potatoes
"easy to make and came out great."
"I made this recipe for Easter dinner. I had always been more of an augratin fan, but this recipe made me reconsider...I loved it! And even the reheated leftovers were good!"
"easy and delicious!"
"This is excellent! If I'm in a time crunch, I add about 1 teaspoon minced, dehydrated onion to the sauce instead of chopping fresh (then I only have to layer the potatoes and sauce). I find the time listed in the recipe to be a bit off. After 35-40 minutes, the sauce is still a bit on the soupy side, and the potatoes not quite done, so I remove the cover and bake them about 15 minutes more. Just the little extra time makes the sauce creamy instead of soupy, and the potatoes tender."
