This recipe makes a a very saucy scalloped potatoes. I seasoned the water that I cooked the potatoes in so I left out the extra salt (1/2 tsp.) called for in the recipe and the seasoning was spot on. Noticed that with thinly slice potatoes that the cooking time of 3 minutes should probably be shortened to one or two minutes. Mine potato slices seemed to turn out a bit too well cooked, as the potatoes keep cooking while waiting to assemble. This will depend on how thick/thin you slice the potatoes. Some nice additions would be minced parsley sprinkled through each layer. I also added a pinch or two of nutmeg when making the sauce.

The sauciness was lovely and nicely seasoned and balanced throughout the layers of potatoes.

A classic that will be made time and again.
