You can prepare these scalloped potatoes and level them covered and unbaked in the fridge for up to a day in advance. Then simply allow the pan to sit on the counter and warm up as the oven preheats before baking as directed.
How long to cook scalloped potatoes
The length of time to cook these potatoes is usually between 40 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes and depends heavily upon how thick you sliced the potatoes. Thicker potatoes will take longer to cook than thinner sliced ones.
Do I have to peel potatoes for scalloped potatoes?
You can if you want to but you do not have to. This is totally up to your own preferences. Personally, I like my russet potatoes to be peeled and if I use a red potato or Yukon golden then I leave them unpeeled as the peel of those potatoes are much thinner and let noticeable once baked.
