    We have a family tradition of making scalloped potatoes with ham layered in the dish. I can’t wait to try this crockpot version.

    I have a recipe that does not require sauce making. You just layer in the cheese, sprinkle flour on each layer and pour hot milk over all at the end.

      Oo-oo-oo! That sounds good too! (the non-sauce making way)

      I need to make enough for 20 ppl for Ukranian Easter this Sunday. I just do not know how long I will have to cook it for in the crock pot on High. DO you by chance know.

    wow, any chance of a lowering the fat somehow? looks good, too much fat for many of us out there.

      Well, Sel, you could use low or non-fat milk, but the cheese is the point, so I wouldn’t take that out or the butter. It’s all real food, and maybe you know how I feel about that? Also, this is a special occasion dish – we don’t eat it regularly. Finally, I believe in moderation, small portions, and not taking all the fat out of our diets (which is then usually replaced with carbs…) – you can read all about my philosophy in my weight loss series. :)

        Thx for your return comment. Actually, yes, the cheese is the ‘real’ food. Though
        i have learned the drier the cheese the less fats. Perhaps using a dry type would
        help in this area, also flavor wise? Now this is one for a trial run. Love potatoes,
        and the use of non fat half & half would give an edge rather then the total non fat
        milk. I will read up on your philosophical weight loss series. Have you been able
        to have continual results?

        Yes, Sel – for the first time in my life! Eating whole foods, hardly any processed foods, and less carbs overall keeps me full and satisfied with smaller portions. I just ate my way through a special 2-1/2 week vacation and came back the same weight as I left. :)

        I’m intrigued by the idea of using a dryer cheese – do you mean like Parmesan? [which sounds really good to me] Seems like it could be interesting in a slow cooker recipe like this. [I am quite inexperienced so I'm just thinking out loud! Got a little slow cooker at a thrift store recently...]

    They are my hubby’s favorite side dish, but I hate how complicated they are….until now :) I swear I heard the angels sing when I read this recipe! My hubby is going to be surprised with this crockpot side dish on Sunday…thank you!

    That sounds good. Of course, I’d have to substitute rice milk for the dairy milk, but no cream of anything here either! Thanks, Jami!

      Hi Daisy, sounds as though you have a lactose problem? I as well….For quite a while i have been using coconut milk, along with the rice milk. The kind Trader Joe sells. Wow,
      love coconut, and i find it does not flavor what i am cooking. Perhaps, using this will help.

      Butter is not a real problem with many recipes anymore. I use EVOO in place. works just
      fine. Including baking goods. I am aware of a recipe similar to the one Jami presented, that
      the Italians make…..and is it ever good. Same idea of layering potatoes, with a dry cheese. Use a little flour between layers, and of course the Evoo. Don’t forget the wonderful herbs
      used as well. Sel.

    Can I double this,

      If your slow cooker can hold it, I don’t think it would be a problem at all to double, Jenny.

    Has anyone tried freezing this dish? Prior to cooking or after? I was thinking about cutting in to two. Cooking half now and freezing half to bake later. I am looking for easy freezer meals to put away now for after our baby is born. Thanks, Sarah

      I think that would work, Sarah – I’ve frozen potato dishes before and they were okay, though not slow cooked. You’ll have to let us know if you liked it. Oh, and congrats on your soon-to-be baby!! :)

    I’m so excited to try this recipe! I was looking for a crock pot recipe to take into work this week, and I couldn’t believe that nearly every recipe for scalloped potatoes called for canned soup. Gross!

    Thanks for posting this recipe.
