What a great recipe! I'm going to make it this week. I never thought of parboiling the potatoes so my scalloped potatoes always were a bit hard. I think too that one could use up leftover lunch meat chopped and get a good result. What do you think about that?

A bit of any sausage would add to this dish. Bologna, Italian, bratwurst, I'd try them all.
