Parmesan Scalloped Potatoes

This cheesy, creamy potato dish isn’t exactly low-fat though, so I do try to save it for special occasions.

As much as I’d love to eat potatoes covered in cream and cheese on a regular basis, I don’t think my metabolism is up to the task.

But these are pretty amazing. It’s really hard to say no to seconds!

I usually end up using about 6 medium sized potatoes in this recipe and it seems to work out about right. Russet and Yukon Gold are both good varieties to try in this dish, and I think red skinned potatoes would work well too.

Let’s be honest, any potato is going to be good in this recipe, so use whatever you have on hand.

Be sure to save this Parmesan Scalloped Potatoes recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.

  1. LOved the dish very much..my family members are voracious potato eaters..they will just love this dish..

  2. Wow! I just tried this recipe for my family (I am only sixteen) and we were all so amazed! With not much cooking experience under my belt I was surprised I could make something so delicious. Best scalloped potatoes we have ever had, what a treat!

  3. Just wondering for the potatoes, are they raw peeled and sliced then cooked in the sauce? Or should they be pre boiled slightly?

  4. My family loves this recipe. I made it the first time for Christmas dinner and we’ve made it several times since. It is on this week’s meal plan as well.
