We recently found out that my daughter can't have gluten, so my usual scalloped potato recipe using flour is out of the picture now. I tried this one, since it doesn't have flour and it was fantastic!
I used half & half instead of cream, but other than that I made the recipe as written. Very good, better than my old standby recipe by far. This is my new scalloped potato recipe!
