Ooooh Debbie! Those potatoes look divine! but when there's cheese, it's au gratin. Scalloped potatoes don't have cheese. at least none I've ever seen or eaten.

Well, according to several recipes at Food Network and other sites, scalloped potatoes do have cheese. One recipe I found is very close to Ole-Blue's recipe right down to the Swiss cheese. I also just looked at my boxed potatoes and the scalloped potatoes have cheese and bacon. And the recipes were courtesy of Tyler and Emeril.

Gisslen's "Professional Cooking" has recipes for both "Scalloped Potatoes with Cheese" and ""Potatoes au Gratin." The basic difference is that the au gratin recipe calls for the potatoes to be cooked first before slicing and layering.

I did a google search for the definition and the best I got was "a casserole made of potatoes with a sauce" nothing that said scalloped potatoes don't have cheese. One definition even specified cheddar cheese.

That said ~ I think the name of the recipe is just fine. There's no definition out there that says you can't have cheese on scalloped potatoes.

Boy these look great -- I am making them tonight with sharp chedder instead of swiss as that is what i have on hand.
I do have one question that i think I know the answer. The bacon is cooked first before putting it in. It looks as those it is by looking in the pic.
