MMmmmm Comfort food at it's best. So rich and creamy. I did add in a handful of shredded cheese the last few minutes of baking and also used smoked paprika. Made for HolidayTag.

What a great recipe. I love the idea of flouring the slices first. What really impressed me the most is that it had a cheeseyness to it. The paprika gave it a soft orange color and I guess it was the buttermilk that gave it pseudo cheese effect. I made a half recipe and it was perfect for DH and I, it still required the full amount of oven time. A+ Mikekey :D.

What a great low-fat alternative to the rich, cream-laden scalloped potatoes I used to make. I've been missing them but not anymore now I've found this. I've had trouble before with our Aussie buttermilk curdling when I heated it, so I just took it to around blood temp for this. It still curdled, but the flour seemed to fix the problem.
