    Very tasty, my family loved it. I reduced the milk to 1 1/2 cups since my baking dish wasn't that deep. Also left out the ham and topped the potatoes with a sprinkle of paprika powder and parsley. 30 minutes was just perfect. Will be making this often.

    I guess we must have used too much milk, because ours boiled over--not while it was in the cup, but after the potatoes had been added. Once the mess was cleaned up, we finished cooking it and it was very good. We did not add the ham. I'll try this again with a little less milk. Thanks for posting!

    I (accidentally) sliced potatoes, when I sliced onions, for another recipe (I meant to mash them); so, I looked up microwave scalloped potatoes. I didn't have cream of (anything) soup, so I chose this recipe. I made it exactly as stated, except for deleting meat, and using garlic pepper salt. It was easy, creamy, and great. Thanks! Belinda


I am 48 and live in beautiful Redding, CA. Have been married 29 years and have a 21 year old son. We love the outdoors, camping, the lake, fishing, all that stuff. One of the things we do most is get together with friends for wonderful meals and desserts. I play in 2 bunco groups so have 2 pot lucks each month and am always looking for a good receipe for that!
