This was delicious! I did change it up a bit though. I only had 1/2 lb of baby potatoes, so I did only 1/5 of the main ingredients. I used baby carrots too, cutting each one into thirds. I cut the baby potatoes in half. I boiled them for the full 10 minutes. I did only 1/3 of the cheese sauce. Instead of cheddar I did a mixture of mozzarella and swiss. This combo of cheeses was SO GOOD. I feel like it would be better than the cheddar! Because there was so little, I simply did one layer, pouring all of the main ingredients into a dish, then poured the cheese sauce over top. I baked it for 15 minutes, uncovered it, then baked it for an additional 5 minutes. The vegetables were a perfect done-ness and the cheese sauce was nice and gooey! We were able to get about 3 servings out of it as a side dish. I can't wait to make this again, it was beyond delicious. Next time I'll try it completely as-is, but I think I may keep doing the baby potatoes and baby carrots.

Excellent!!! I've made it in the oven and in an actual dutch oven outside. Absolutely delicious and a favorite at the whole camp. I don't make any other kind of scalloped potatoes now.

This was a big hit at our house. It will become the recipe I use when making scalloped potatoes.
