I made scalloped potatoes yesterday - 10 pounds of potatoes and 2 pounds of onions.

Acck! They cooked in 2 hours! Usually my big roaster full takes 4 hours. Timing is everything with a meal and my timing went to pieces:)

Does anyone know if cream would speed up the cooking process due to the fat? I slipped 2 cups of half 'n half cream into my liquid mixture. Yum.

I have no idea. But the cream sounds like it would make them taste good. I have never made homemade ones before. Sorry.

I am ashamed to say I go for the box mixes of "scalped" potatoes. My husband calls them (very politically incorrect) Indian potatoes because he believed growing up they were scalped and not scalloped potatoes. When and how do you eat 20 lbs of potatoes and onions?

You would make them when your grandchildren come! Actually, the potatoes freeze perfectly. I cut in squares, wrap in plastic then freezer bags. Never runny and so handy.We had 8 at the table that night and probably devoured 1/2 them! We're pigs:)
People always ask me to make them as they don't like to or can't.
