This was the first time I made scalloped potatoes. I followed the recipe, and it turned out great! The potatoes were tender after 1 hour of cooking. I did mix the milk and flour first before pouring over potatoes. For those who found the potato not done after recipe cooking time, I suspect the reason was the potatoes. Someone told me there are many different kinds of potatoes, and they all require different cooking time. All I use is russet potatoes.

Here's a tip for those of you who found the potatoes were undercooked: after slicing potatoes, throw them into a pot of boiling water for 5 or 10 minutes, just to get them a bit tender, then rinse in cold water before continuing with the recipe.

The first time I made this it did not turn out at all. This time I halved the recipe, put it in a shallow casserole dish (so the milk wouldn't sit on the bottom) and covered it with a lid. After the cheese had melted thoroughly, I stirred it, flattened it out and increased the temperature to 425F. After 30 minutes I removed the lid and baked for another 10 minutes to brown and thicken the sauce a bit. That worked out great.

Entire family loved this - but I only sliced 5 potatoes (microwaved for 4 minutes), used cheddar and parmesan cheeses, added garlic powder, and mixed the flour and milk before pouring. Definitely cook covered for 30 mins and uncovered for 30 mins.

Needs a much longer baking time than stated in the recipe! And that even when halving it.

This was an easy and tasty recipe. I used shredded cheddar and monterey jack instead of sliced cheddar. I also sliced to potatoes VERY thin to make sure they cooked in the time stated.

The flavor of this dish is decent, but there are a lot of problems along the way. First, make sure to use a shallow dish or else the milk just stays at the bottom. Second, the cheese and flour never really mixed together and the whole dish needs a lid in the oven to keep it from getting crusty and dry on top. Third, it takes more than ten minutes to prepare and at least sixty minutes in the oven. The flavor was fine, but not good enough to inspire me to try making this dish again.

After reading all the reviews, I didn't follow this recipe to the T (I never do!), but used it as an inspiration. I am one for spices and this didn't have enough, so I added a few dashes of a blend of peppers/chillies as well as a clove of minced garlic, plus 2 tbsp sour cream. And I added 2 breasts of boiled cubed chicken to make it more of a casserole. Having read all the reviews regarding the extremely slow cooking time, I used my food processor and sliced the potatoes up really thin, but I made the mistake of not either (1) boiling them for 5-10 minutes beforehand or (2) putting it in a 13x9 baking dish (vs a 9x9 one). Despite the EXTREMELY LONG cooking time (1 hr at 375 plus 15 mins at 425!!!), this turned out DELICIOUS!!! thanks for the inspiration...
