Homemade Scalloped Potatoes
I once made the mistake of suggesting that my family skip the scalloped potatoes at Christmas Eve dinner. I’m not sure which was worse—the look of unspeakable horror on my sisters’ faces or nearly being cut off from the wine due to my obvious loss of mental capacity. If scalloped potatoes are a staple on your family’s holiday menu too, then grab your spuds, and let’s make easy homemade scalloped potatoes!
A lot of heavy cream and maybe as many tears went into making what I can now declaredly say is my absolute favorite and (dare I say it?…I do!) the best scalloped potatoes recipe.
Part of my homemade scalloped potato recipe testing eventually led to these Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes, which lean more on the side of a classic cheesy scalloped potatoes recipe (think scalloped potatoes Pioneer Woman) if that’s what you are seeking. They’re different than today’s from scratch scalloped potatoes recipe, but both are absolutely delicious. It depends on what you are after.
Today’s more modern version of scalloped potatoes is also cheesy, but it eats a little lighter, which is something about it I adore. These potatoes tastes decadent and memorable enough for something as special a holiday meal but won’t weigh you down so much you feel stuffed after a few bites.
Another key differentiator of this recipe: these are quick scalloped potatoes. There’s no béchamel sauce to fuss with, so you can skip that entire step and keep your stovetop free. (more…)
