Saucy Scalloped Potatoes

For old-fashioned flavor, try these scalloped potatoes. They cook up tender, creamy and comforting and chopped ham adds a hearty touch. —Elaine Kane, Keizer, Oregon

    Sounds good but at over 500 calories per 1/2 cup serving, I am going to pass!

    I thought your recipe was spot on. I loved it. I do not agree, as an American I was born of salt, and love salt and pepper and ANYTHING FOOD! Except for octopus, I did not like that one. But thank you for this recipe it’s a for sure keeper! Love it love it love it!

    I always like using my slow cooker. To pre-thicken these I put all the sauce ingredients in the crock pot, minus the potatoes. Then I added a little flour and water together and stirred it into the sauce. I started peeling and slicing the potatoes directly into the crockpot. I stirred all together and then proceeded as usual. I had added onion and garlic salt but wouldn’t do that again. The ham is salty enough!

    Too much sodium for you? Don’t make them. Don’t like canned soup? Don’t make them. Don’t have a crock pot? Put them in the oven. Looking for cheesy potatoes? Just add cheese -- call them whatever you like! Think they sound or taste bland? Add seasoning! Live somewhere where they call these something else? That’s okay, too. I’m disappointed that the TOH moderators are asleep at the wheel. No need to allow all of these nasty comments on a dang recipe website. Some of you have way too much time on your hands! Just be kind or keep on scrolling. Have a nice day.

    I am sending you a definition of Au Gratin from Google, "What is the difference between scalloped and au gratin? The key difference between scalloped potatoes and potatoes au gratin is whether or not cheese is used. Potatoes au gratin uses grated cheese. Scalloped potatoes do not, they use heavy cream or milk."

    In Canada, scalloped potatoes actually have cheese. Here, "gratin" means something else, usually something covered in actual cheese, not cheese *sauce*. "Gratin" of fall vegetables is a casserole of vegetables layered with grated cheese.

    I agree this needs some tweaking.

    I love scalloped potatoes but these were very disappointing. The recipe is way too soupy and lacking in flavor. Sorry but I won't be making this one again.

    My family loved this!!! I also love the fact this is made in a slow cooker. I bet it would be delicious even if I didn't add the ham. Will definitely make this again and again.

    Loved This recipe and how quick and easy it was to put together. I added a can of cheese soup for more flavor
