Wanting to make 4 boxes of scalloped potatoes in an electric roaster. I am wondering if I follow the directions on the box for the amounts of milk & water and cooking time or do have to change it what would the changes be?

Thank you
Dorothy

Yes, you can do this.

These pans work best whan at least 1/2 full. Not sure how big your boxes are; if much less than 1/2 (about 8 quarts total) consider using a casserole inside the roaster.

If using the roaster cooking pan directly, heavily coat the cooking pan with non-stick spray and dust with plain old grated Parmesan

Preheat the roaster to temp (20 minutes) before adding the potatoes in the cooking pan.

Expect that they won't get crispy on top or around the edges, and will probably be a little more moist/ slurpy than from a regular oven.
