This recipe originally comes from the 1999 issue of Ladies' Home Journal, which sadly is no longer printed. The potatoes that work best are russet potatoes. You also must use cream. These are the best scalloped potatoes ever and I've made them for years.
Great recipe. One thing i did different was to cook them in the cream on top of stove for 8 minutes ( till fork tender). Then assemble with the cheese in baking dish and bake for 25 min till golden brown. It cuts the time in half and they are cooked perfectly.
The reviews were so great I had to try it – and it didn't disappoint! Best scalloped potatoes I've ever made! Didn't have whipping cream, used 18% cream and 2% milk. Used mozzarella. It was fantastic! I had to Google if you're supposed to cover it ;-)
Best scalloped potatoes ever! I made these for Christmas dinner to go with Hickory Spiral ham. this will be what I make every year for Christmas. I used whipping cream, but I didn't have whole milk in the house ,so I substituted 18% cream. Other than that I followed the recipe to a T. The scalloped potatoes were cheesy, creamy deliciousness.
Great recipe. And Easy! I ended up sub half/half for the cream and it was a lil curdly, but still delish. Next time I'll use the heavy cream to avoid this, not a calorie watching worthy dish lol. I'd def make this again!
Made it to accompany Easter ham. It turned out beautifully with a creamy garlicky cheesy sauce and toasted top. Next time, I will add onions in each layer as I normally do with scalloped potatoes but forgot to this time. This will become my new favourite scalloped potato dish from now on.
Made these for Easter dinner, and we loved them. I found a mix of Gruyere & Swiss cheese, grated, at Whole Foods, was a bit pricey but worked great. I also used sour cream &milk instead of whipping cream. I never had Scalloped Potatoes so creamy & Tasty. Will defiantly make them again. Thanks for posting!
I really loved this and so did my husband! I didn't have whipping cream so I mixed sour cream and milk and used that as a base between potato layers. Also I used a bit of Parmesan cheese, but mostly used shredded Colby Jack. I think whatever type of cheese tip use will be good as long as it's a kind you like. It's very interchangeable. I also didn't peel the potatoes I left the skin on and my husband didn't even notice. It's a nice way to save sometime. I baked for an hour and they were perfect. You do need to season quite a bit.
