This recipe was very easy to make, but it didn't turn out like I was expecting. When I think of scalloped potatoes, I think of potatoes in a creamy white sauce. But after cooking in a crockpot all day, the sauce turned out more on the thin side, not the creamy white sauce I'd started out with. (A side note: I wasn't sure about making a white sauce with no fat in it, since I usually make mine with butter, but it turned out wonderfully when I mixed it up - I might take that part of the recipe and use it to make white sauce all the time!) And I ended up with a big blob of ham and cheese on top - I think I would have liked it better had I layered the ham and cheese throughout, rather than putting it all on top. It had a really strong onion flavor, too, but I think that would have been better had I been able to use Texas sweet onions (currently out of season) instead of regular white onions. It wasn't bad, it just didn't turn out quite like what I'd envisioned - not sure if that's my doing or the recipes. I might try it again and make a couple of changes to see how it turns out.
