These are delicious. I love making them, the taste is great. We kept working to improve the recipe until it was exactly the way we wanted it.

I would have given this five stars, but after reading some of the reviewer's suggestions, I used their advice and so the four stars is due to making the changes. I tripled the milk and flour (using heavy cream instead of milk), and reduced the salt and pepper ( just sprinkling some on each layer- so maybe 1 tsp. each in total.) I used Kirkland bacon bits instead of frying up bacon, but other than those adjustments stuck to the original. It had wonderful flavor, creamy and rich with just enough sauce( I can see why people commented about it being dry and needing more liquid, so that is why I tripled it- thanks for the heads up!. The salty, smoky taste of the ham and bacon were a delightful addition to the potatoes and this is high comfort food. I will make this again- very good! Read More

This recipe has a lot of promise but 2 tablespoons of salt and 2 tablespoons of pepper is a lot of spice for 10 potatoes. Also, as another mentioned, there is no way you can cook this for 2 hours and use only 2/3 cup of liquid with a thickener. My first attempt at this recipe was far too salty for us to enjoy but we used milk to reheat the next day and that helped make it more edible. I also used 4 - 4-1/2 cups milk with appropriate amount of flour. So anyhow, next time I will use only 2 teaspoons of salt, 1/2 pepper and more milk with less flour. I may try parboiling the potatoes to quicken the cooking time as well. It's a great recipe otherwise. The flavor was fantastic once we got past the salt. The simplicity was appreciated. Read More

Overall, this recipe was very good. After reading some reviews I tweaked this recipe. I also made 1/2 of the recipe since the meal was only for my husband and I. First, I made the bacon in the oven. Then, I cut up the bacon. I shredded 1 cup of cheddar cheese. I chopped 1/2 an onion and sauteed the onions with 1 T. of butter. I added 3 T. of flour and 2 and 1/3 cups of milk, 1 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper and whisked the sauce. I let the sauce simmer about 5 minutes. I added some sauce to the bottom of the baking dish. I sprayed the pan with a cooking spray. I then added the bacon to each layer. I added some sauce to the bottom of the pan and layered per directions. The scalloped potatoes were done in an hour.

OMG This was great. I did triple the milk and flour and used 10- 12 potatoes. I did need to cook the whole two hours plus I left it in the oven with the heat turned off. It will be great for Christmas tomorrow.:))))))) Read More

The only thing I did different is instead of cubing the ham I put it thru the food processor. You get ham in every bite and it seems to flavor the potatoes even better. I tried it both ways but processing the ham is the best way. I also do the ham this way for ham and bean soup. Read More

This dish was delicious. I did modify it a bit since I was only cooking for 5 people and didn't want a ton of leftovers. I cut the recipe in half did not use salt (cheese and ham are salty enough) and swapped potato flour for the regular flour to make it gluten free. I used 1T of potato flour and to keep the milk/flour mixture as a liquid I ended up using 2/3c of skim milk. It was creamy great flavor texture and heard lots of "mmmmm's" during dinner. Easy to assemble and cooked for about 90 minutes. Read More
