I personally think this recipe is awesome. My grandmother has made THE BEST Scalloped potatoes since I was little. I mean really good ones. I asked her for her recipe about a year ago only to my surprise to find out this Fannie Farmer was the same recipe, my grandma is in her 80's.

This is a great recipe...I also add thinly sliced onion and some bacon or ham for more flavor.

This is the exact way my mother made her scalloped potatoes, except she would layer thinly sliced onions and sliced Spam to her layers. I, in turn, made them the same way she did, for my family. I prefer this cooking method to making a roux./ white sauce. I've used ham a couple of times, but don't think it gives the dish the same full-bodied flavor that Spam does. I've also added grated chedder cheese to the layers. The beauty of this recipe is that the ingredients are flexible, and the assembly techinque easy. Thanks for posting.

Fantastic recipe! I made these to go with out ham steaks and they turned out perfect. I did shred my potatoes instead of slicing but otherwise followed the recipe. I will use this again....thank you for sharing.

By omitting the flour and using onion salt rather than plain salt, this recipe becomes one of my childhood favorites. My mother made it that way, and so did her grandmother. I tried it with the flour, which was nice too, but the onion salt is definitely a delicious, savory way to prepare these potatoes. FYI, I think a shallow dish would have worked better for me than my deep one, because I ended up using a lot more than 1 1/2 cups of milk, and I had to bake more like an hour and a half. But delicious! I love these!

Farewell boxed scalloped potatoes...this fabulous recipe is 100 times better! I used fat-free milk and did not add onion, because they would make my kids suspicious! However, I did sprinkle onion powder along with the salt and pepper, and the flavor was perfect. I'll double this recipe and take it to Easter dinner!

These were very good!! I added one sliced onion, 2 smashed cloves of garlic and some shredded parmesan cheese on top. I whisked the garlic and flour together into the milk before pouring it onto the potatoes.Wonderful stuff, thanks for a good one!!November 29/07 made these for supper tonight, wonderful stuff!!! I added sliced onion this time and just made half a recipe for the two of us. Thanks again for a good one!

I love onions in almost everything including this recipe. I put a layer of onions with each layer of potatoes. Before serving, stir in shredded cheddar cheese to your liking.
