Dijon Scalloped Potatoes

My family loves this creamy and colorful recipe for cheesy potatoes. It has both sweet and white potatoes, lots of rich, buttery flavor and a pretty, golden-crumb topping. —Carolyn Putnam, Norwalk, Ohio

    Have made this before, but without sweet potatoes. Buttered town house or club crackers seem to always produce the best flavor. I add a little dried thyme and ground rosemary and a squeeze of garlic paste. They do take longer than 60 minutes, even on convection setting, but potatoes cook more uniformly that way. I lay a loose piece of foil over top for about 2/3 of baking time, and the crackers brown perfectly at the end.

    Delicious! And so very pretty with the sweet potatoes in with the white. I took out at 55 minutes, but feel 60 to 65 minutes would have been better!

    A unique twist on scalloped potatoes that we loved. The mustard gives it a nice tang and the crackers on top lend flavor and texture. I used Ritz crackers and I did feel they got too brown at the end - I took them out at 50 minutes, but I felt a few of the potatoes should have cooked the full 60 minutes. So I might recommend covering the potatoes at the end so the crackers don't get too dark - or maybe adding the crackers after 30 minutes? Not sure. Either way, I will be making this again. If anyone is looking for a good pairing - I made it with this Taste of Home recipe!

    Will add recipe to my collection. Made last night. Both husband and I liked!! Topping was good, too. I did bake at 375, as that is what the meatloaf was baking at. I used all regular potatoes, as did not have sweet potatoes. I doubled amount of mustard, as we like that flavor. I did have a problem with the cream cheese melting. I used low fat so maybe that was the problem. Over all great recipe.

    I made this recipe as written, my husband and I liked the potatoes, but didn't care for the topping. I made them a second time, this time I topped the potatoes with a cheddar cheese, butter, and panko mixture. This was so good. The third time I made the potatoes, I topped them with a panko, butter, & parmesan mixture. This was our favorite!

    Can this recipe be cooked in a slow cooker?
