I guess the potato scallop originated from 'scalloped potatos' and the dish you described above (yummo by the way) is what *most* Queenslanders would call 'Potato Bake'.
It will always be a little ongoing war between DH and I amongst other vic vs qld terms we jokingly rib each other about. For example, I say 'Peanut paste' and he says 'Peanut butter'. I say Broco-(lye) and he says Broco(lee).
