    Love scalloped potatoes but no onions added here:) Hmmm..never thought of adding chicken broth.
    Great photo as usual, Jeanine!

    OH my goodness thank you for posting this. Mayonnaise saves my non-dairy days. I never would have thought to use it in scalloped potatoes. YUM!

    No onions for you, Betty?? I did them finely chopped, so the flavour was there, but no stringy onions. :) I was surprised how nice the flavour was with the chicken broth.
    I never would have thought of mayo in scalloped potatoes either, but they tasted great. :)

    Doesn’t the use of mayonnaise kind of defeat the purpose of going for a dairy-free recipe?

    I haven’t found a dairy-free mayonnaise that doesn’t involve soy, and I can’t use a lot of soy…so I’m kind of stumped on what I could substitute for it.

      I would try either a coconut yogurt or maybe a dairy free sour cream? I don’t need to eat dairy free, so I am not quite sure what you’d sub it with. I think you could leave it out without any problems, actually.

      Mayo is dairy free, it is made with eggs which are not dairy. However, I do make my own paleo mayo which still contains egg but is made with light olive oil instead of soybean oil and is much healthier.

    We made these for our Easter dinner today and they were amazing! I just added some garlic salt instead of regular salt and they turned out perfectly! Great for my celiac hubby and our friends’ son that is GF/DF. Thanks so much!
    PS – We are moving from Maryland to Winnipeg in August – it’s great to see that there is some GF support up there! Thank you!

      Glad to hear they were a hit, Amy! Moving to Winnipeg, huh? Well, if you need help finding gluten-free goodies, let me know, I’ll point you in the right direction. :)
      (BTW – as of today we haven’t been above +5*C in 6 months – are you sure Winnipeg is where you want to be??) :)

    Tried this recipe this week and my entire family loved it! Question though – any chance it could work in the crockpot?? I’m not usually home in time to start cooking 2 hours before dinner :)
