I followed this recipe exactly as written and the family really did enjoy these potato's with the buttermilk. The buttermilk gave a great flavor to the potato's and complimented the chicken and mushrooms in wine sauce, that I served it with so very well. The family really did love these potato's! A great, yet simple and delicious side to serve anytime!

Yum! Never would have thought that buttermilk could make that much of a difference. But it definitely made these potatoes creamier. Scalloped potatoes is a family favorite so will try this version at a family function soon!!

This is total comfort food for me. I usually don't make it in the summer months, but was intrigued to try it with the buttermilk. I really liked the added flavor from the buttermilk!! The only other difference from our family recipe, was mixing the seasoning with the flour and then adding the potatoes to it and shaking to coat. I think next time I would mix the seasoning with the flour, but then just sprinkle it evenly over the potatoes, as it seemed to really stick to the first potatoes in the bag and not on the others. Thanks for sharing a new favorite. Made for Susie's World Tour 2018.

I scaled back for one serve and used a medium Carisma potato (low GI) but when I put the buttermilk into the pan it curdled but went ahead and baked for an hour at 175C and the end result was delicious and very much enjoyed. Thank you Mikekey made for Pick Me tag game.

These are really good! Tagged because I had "real" buttermilk that I needed to use up, but so glad I made them. They are really creamy and rich tasting. I sprinkled some cheese over half of them to satisfy my cheese loving son, but otherwise stayed true to the recipe. Thanks for sharing! Made for your win in Football tag.

Great potatoes! I cut the recipe by half for just me and had them the next day too. The sourness in the milk made the potatoes taste extra good. I used some garlic too.
