I wanted to make scalloped potatoes as a side dish for last Sunday's meal, but didn't want to heat up the kitchen by turning the oven on (it was a 95-degree day). I found your recipe and thought I'd give it a try. It turned out delicious -- I was concerned that the sauce wouldn't thicken up and the potatoes wouldn't be as creamy as in the oven-baked kind, but this turned out perfectly. I had two leftover strips of bacon in the fridge, so I crumbled them and sprinkled them in the bottom layer. I sliced my potatoes quite thinly, and this was done in a little over 15 minutes. It was great -- just like an oven-baked casserole. Will definitely make again -- and this recipe will also be nice to have when I'm cooking something in the oven at a different temperature and can't put the potatoes in there -- now I'll just cook them on the stovepot. Thanks for posting this recipe, dicentra!
