These are the greatest Scalloped Potatoes you will ever try! So creamy, so cheesy, everyone’s favorite side dish. These potatoes are thinly sliced and baked with cream sauce and cheese.
This is my family’s favorite side dish of all time. They can eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If I let them, they’d eat it all day, every day. That is probably why I don’t make it too often since it’s not exactly a “skinny” side dish.
These scalloped potatoes is the epitome of comfort food and taste so good, it’s worth every calorie. It’s not just scalloped potatoes or potatoes au gratin, it’s both put together since it’s made with cream and cheese. So I save this special side dish for special occasions and holidays.
I actually make this dish for every holiday dinner. It’s a must-have side at our family Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and many other gatherings. These potatoes are perfect along side turkey, chicken, ham, beef, and any other protein you wish to serve.
HOW TO MAKE IT
Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a 13×9 casserole baking pan with some vegetable oil.
Make the cream mixture by whisking together sour cream, mayo, heavy cream, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper and set it aside.
Slice potatoes very thin using mandoline slicer just make sure to be very careful and watch your fingers. If you don’t have a slicer available, use a sharp knife to slice potatoes thinly and the same thickness.
Spread a thin layer of cream sauce in the bottom of the baking pan. Start layering 1/2 of potatoes in one even layer. Spread 1/3 of shredded cheeses over potatoes and then 1/3 of the sauce.
Repeat potatoes, cheese and sauce two more times. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour.
Take off the foil and bake fore another 20-30 minutes. Insert a knife in the thickest part to make sure that the potatoes are well cooked.
