The best, richest scalloped potatoes you've ever tasted.

"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."


1 teaspoon Butter
1 large clove Garlic
1 cup Whipping cream
1/3 cup Whole Milk
1 teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon Ground pepper
2 pounds Potatoes; cut into 1/8 inch slices
1 cup Gruyere; grated
1/4 cup Parmesan; grated

2. Lightly butter a 2-quart shallow baking dish

3. Lightly crush garlic with side of knife. Heat cream, milk, garlic, salt and pepper in a small saucepan over medium heat until small bubbles appear around the edge. Remove from heat and let stand 10 min.

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.

This is a thanksgiving favorite in my house. Very very good recipe!

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!
