The secret is that these delicious scalloped potatoes are made with sliced canned potatoes! What a great time saver. They do not taste like canned potatoes at all. We can't tell the difference. You can also use fresh potatoes in this recipe, but the canned ones are so much easier to use! So it is time to throw away Betty Crocker's boxed potatoes. We think these are much better! Enjoy!
