Scalloped Taters

This creamy and comforting slow-cooked side tastes great with almost any main dish and is a snap to assemble with convenient frozen hash browns. It's a good way to make potatoes when your oven is busy with other dishes. —Lucinda Wolker, Somerset, Pennsylvania

    This sounds great! I want to try it soon. But I am thinking of substituting Panko bread crumbs or crushed potato chips instead of cornflake crumbs, and adding more seasoning.

    This recipe sounds yummy, but it is not Scalloped it is au Gratin. Scalloped potatoes do not have cheese in them. I am putting this on my "I have to fix this list."

    I always kinda tweak recipes so on this one I used the hash browns with onions and peppers. I also added cubes of ham. The rest of the ingredients the same. Wow it was awesome.

    I substituted fat free mushroom soup for the chicken soup. I hate cream of chicken soup. I make into a one pot meal by adding 1 pound each browned and well drained ground beef and pork sausage. Serve with a green salad.

    Don't know what the difference would be, but mine were really soupy. It also indicates a 5qt slow cooker - I put mine in a 3.5qt slow cooker, and could have doubled the recipe. The buttery toasted cornflake topping was good.

    Delicious! Like a creamy mac and cheese, but with diced potatoes instead of pasta. Great company side dish. Family loved it!

    I needed a potato recipe for a pot luck at work, so I wanted a crock pot recipe that was easy. I make this in the morning and turned on the crock pot at 8AM. I had to unplug for 20 min. to drive to work and plugged in right away. By 11AM I had to put on high and cook for additional two hours for the potatoes to be tender. I suggest cooking on high unless you have at least 5-6 hours to cook on low like the recipe says. When done, you can change setting to warm. This was a hit! I substituted the dried onions for garlic powder since I am allergic to onions. I used about 2 tablespoons garlic powder. I will make this again. Prep time was about 10 minutes top.

    I love making these, as they're not just for Thanksgiving. I like that it frees up space in the oven when I have a big meal cooking.

    I love all things potato and this is a great dish. It can be served with anything and makes dinner a cinch.

    I was surprised at how tasty this was and goes with anything. Doesn't taste like slow-cooker food.
