It turned out great. I used chives and a couple sprigs of rosemary in the sauce. What I also did was add some vodka and beer in the sauce close to the end.

So good. I ate it with flat bread with butter, much much better
Susan R. 13 May
Delicious; my husband was especially happy. Only drawback is that I have to remember how rich it is and pair it carefully. Still, yum!
so good!! I added bacon as well - perfect!

didnt add herbs cause didnt have any but it needed a little bit more stock for next time.😃
Absolutely fantastic! Didn’t have milk, used 1/4 heavy cream mixed with the rest of the 2 cups of water...and substituted the chicken broth for one cup of water and 1 TSP of butter - cane even better this way in my opinion and was on accident - also didn’t have thyme so used oregano and basil - amazing!!

I've never made homemade scalloped potatoes before and I knocked this out of the park! So good! Will make a million times more!

This recipe is great!
Very good recipe. I added chopped ham on the middle for some protein. I agree with only using fresh grated cheese as opposed to the pre-bagged type. Fresh tastes better and melts better too. Enjoy#

Delightfully cheesy. I layered the onions and slices between the potatoes because I didn’t want to deal with straining them. I also accidentally added half again as much cheese - not necessarily a bad thing. ;) Didn’t quote get the sauce right and had the runny separation that she warned about, but it all tasted delicious anyway! I will definitely try the roux based method again.
Perfect! so flavorful and tasty
