Can Scalloped Potatoes Be Cooked Ahead?

An Ask the Chef

Q.  I'm wondering if I can cook scalloped potatoes completely ahead of time, throw in the 'fridge, and reheat 2 days later? Or would it ruin the end result and     make them dry, mushy, mealy tasting? 

Thanks,
Laura

A. Chef Gail Cunningham says: "Absolutely. I do that all the time when I'm having guests. It saves lots of time and tastes just fine--and I love potatoes!"
