The BEST!!! The only way to make scalloped potatoes as far as we are concerned. Deserves more than 5-stars. This produced a sumptuous creamy cheese sauce and the bacon-onion add WOW for flavor. The potatoes turned out very tender. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe.

This is the way I remember my Gran making scalloped potatoes. I tried them out on my family and I was Queen for a day. Very tender potatos with the added goodness of bacon and onion flavors. Topped off with that of so luscious creamy cheese sauce. Nothing better in my opinion. Thanks.
