Fast, easy and delicious! I made the cheesy version and added a few sliced green onions to the top during the last 5 minutes of baking. Will definitely make this again! Thanks Land O Lakes, I finally found a scalloped potatoes recipe that doesn't need hours to make.


Tasty! Would make again! I made the cheesy version, since I did not have any parmesan.


I made this for the second time last night and my husband thinks it needs more "flavor." We added salt (which he avoids) and black pepper and it brings out the flavor more. I use 1% milk as I don't like the taste of Carnation. Perhaps adding chicken broth would improve the taste or other seasonings. I love the fact that the baking time is so much less than my Mom used to bake it - 1 1/2 hours! It's definately creamy and delicious! Thanks! Jana G.
