"Very rich, cheesy, and creamy. After trying most of the top rated recipes on this site, I still think my Mom's is the best. Total comfort food. More like a cheesy potato casserole."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a large baking dish.
  2. Wash and peel the potatoes so that only some of the peel remains on the potatoes; cut into 1/8 inch slices. Put the potatoes in the prepared dish.
  3. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook the onion and garlic in the melted butter until soft and translucent, 7 to 10 minutes; stir in the broccoli soup, celery soup, milk, salt, pepper, and about half of the Cheddar cheese; cook until the cheese has melted. Pour the mixture over the potatoes; top with the remaining Cheddar cheese. Cover with aluminum foil or lid.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove the cover and cook until the cheese begins to brown, about 10 minutes more.

Needed to cook at least 20 min. longer to brown on the top. Very tasty though!

Not the best nor worst scalloped potato recipe here. Used low sodium cream of celery and broccoli cheddar soups. Might exchange cream of mushroom with the cream of celery if I make it again. S...

Outstanding! The BEST scalloped potatoes I have ever made. During the last 30 minutes I put some pork chops on top of the potatoes. I turned them after 15 minutes at which time I also laid some ...

We added ham and frozen spinach, it was delish!
