  • Scalloped potatoes in Electric Roaster??
    I REALLY want to fix a big batch of scalloped potatoes in my roaster oven, but have never done anything except ham or turkey in it. Has anyone had experience with this? I don't want to burn a big batch or find out they take forever to cook. Who can spare me from any big boo boos? TIA Linda

    Double this recipe for an 18-qt. roaster:

    Cheesy Potatoes

    3 pounds hash brown shredded potatoes, frozen
    24-ounces light sour cream
    2 10-3/4 ounce cans cream of chicken soup
    2 pounds mild cheddar cheese, shredded
    1/2 cup onions, diced
    1/4 cup red and green peppers, diced


    Mix potatoes, sour cream, soup, cheese, onions and peppers. Cook slowly at 200º F. 1-1/2 hours.

    If using thawed hash browns, cut cooking time down. If unthawed, cook 1-1/2 hours at 150º F.

    Serves 10 to 12.

    The recipe comes from Nesco.

    Thanks so much. My family will expect my traditional recipe (with the sliced raw potatoes). I'm just wondering about adjusting the time and temp. Guess I should have explained better. Your recipe does sound good though. Hope someone has had some experience with this.

    My recipe is baked with foil covering for 1 hr. at 350 degrees and then without the foil for another 30 minutes in a regular oven.

    12/12/05 I would like to use my roaster oven to make scalloped potatoes for a luncheon at work. Can I use my regular oven recipe? In that recipe the potatoes are covered with foil for the first 30 minutes and then cooked uncovered for an hour in a 350 degree oven. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you.

    12/16/05 A crock pot recipe would be safer, time and temp wise.
    Be careful to keep the thickness of the potatoes under 4 inches, and double the cooking time if you triple the recipe. (Or partially boil the potatoes before baking). Nesco has recipes listed.


    I have never made scalloped potatoes this way...from this cooking site where someone asked the same question it sounds like a crockpot would be better if you do not want to use the oven or microwave.

    When I bake stuff like this in mine I always put it in a roaster or casserole and put that inside that electric roaster. Easy clean up and it bakes like a regular oven but a bit slower.

    You would have to increase the recipe for a larger amount but this might work for you.

    Thanks everyone, I'll try to experiment with some of these recipes in the roaster. I think for tomorrow's dinner though I'll stay with my old tried and true recipe in 2 9x13 pans in the oven. My crockpots will be full of Swedish meatballs and potato sausage. -Linda

    I cook for a large horse club. Serve about 300 when we have a trail ride.

    If you have a Cisco Food outlet in your area, their dried scalloped potatoes are delicious. Real potatoes (Dried chips) and the seasonings.

    I cook them in roasters or throwaway alum. pans. Have gotten many compliments on them. very easy to make.
