GFCF Scalloped potatoes

I love potatoes -- all types. And, I sorta miss having scalloped potatoes since we've become mostly a GFCF household. Being soy-free also doesn't make subbing dairy any easier. I've tried to develop scalloped potato recipes a few times but failed. Getting the right flavor and texture is vital to this recipe. Finally, I've come up with a recipe that's pretty darn good. It's something I can live with. And, my kids like it too. I did this in the crock pot, but I'm sure you can adapt to the oven.

Potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
Dairy free margarine or ghee -- I used Spectrum shortening

GFCF "Rice Krispies" treats

I came across this treat in the store the other day. It's expensive -- I think about $5 a box. But, it was a nice surprise for my kids and will be an every-so-often treat for them. I'm going to try and replicate this recipe. If I do, I'll post it here.

These are very good. And, the kids love the colorful wrappers -- just like the other kids enjoy.
