I was so happy to find this recipe and even happier when it worked! This is very similar to my recipe for scalloped potatoes in the oven and just as good. I omitted the onions, but otherwise followed the directions as stated. I sliced my potatoes (russets) and cooked on low for 5 hours and then turned on to high for one hour. Very good.
We got everything ready and in the crock pot the night before. The next morning all we had to do was cook it. They turned out great. We left out the optional ham because we have some vegetarians in our family. But I did set the bottle of bacos on the table in case anyone wanted to sprinkle them on top. These were enjoyed by the whole family. Thanks!
This was easy to put together and smelled and tasted good. I adjusted for 12 servings, except kept the milk at a total of 2 cups due to other comments on this recipe, and that seemed to work out fine. I also stirred the potatoes a few times during the cooking time (every couple of hours or so). However, for some reason it looked dull/brown-ish. Some of my potatoes turned reddish brown before I managed to get the cheese sauce made and poured over them. I'm not sure if there is something I could have done to prevent that? So the appearance wasn't great. But yummy and easy. I think it was enjoyed by all.
Excellent scalloped potatoes recipe! Easy to make! I liked the creamy cheese sauce. I decreased the milk to 1 1/2 cups and it was just right after 3 hours on high. Make sure the sauce gets really thick on the stove and to use starchy potatoes. Thank you for posting. I'll make this again.
We really enjoyed this as a side dish. I left out the onion and started w/ 1 c. of milk as others had said they were too runny. I ended up adding in another 1/2 c. of milk before they were done. I cooked them on low for 6 1/2 hrs. Thanks for a great recipe that didn't make me heat the oven in this too hot of summer that we are having.
This just didn't quite hit the mark for me. I'm all about stuff I can put in the crock pot, but there's a whole lot of preparation before it goes in here... and it turned out thin for me as well (also a little too satly for my taste, but I used ham so maybe should have cut back on the salt?)
This turned out great. Very good. Would use a little less milk next time.
Great tasting but a bit thin. I served it in a bowl with a spoon and told Dh it was potato soup. He was happy, so why rock the boat? I cooked it 6 hours on low, saw how thin it was becoming and finished the last hour on high. Perhaps I misunderstood the directions. I went ahead and made the cheesesauce on the stovetop, adding the finished sauce to the raw potatoes and ham. Maybe that's backwards. Start with a thin, cold, uncooked cheesesauce and 6 hours later, it has thickened? If I tried it again, that's what I'd do.
