Great easy recipe. Like many others I added some american cheese to the mix. Also, added garlic and used plain tortilla chips (crushed of course) instead of corn flakes. The white wine or sherry makes a huge difference. One last addition, I added diced bacon to the mix. All said, the base recipe is awesome and makes it easy to add and tweak to your interests!
Really good scalloped potatoes recipe! The entire family enjoyed this, there were no leftovers. I did make a couple minor modifications. I only used 3/4 of a cup of butter, because that was all I had. Instead of using cornflakes I used panko bread crumbs and I mixed parmesan and shredded mozzarella in with the breadcrumbs. Lastly, I added aprox 2 cups of chopped smoked ham steak.
