Easy Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

Updated on March 12, 2013
5 stars from 2 ratings of Scalloped Potatoes

I absolutely love scalloped potatoes even though they may not be the heathiest thing for you, but for once in a while having these shouldn't hurt much. My mom always made the tastiest scalloped potatoes one day I got her to teach me how to make them. Ever since I started making them myself everyone in my house loves them and is now one of the family favorites. Hopefully it will be your families favorite too.
