4.6 stars from 8 ratings of Scalloped Potatoes

These scalloped potatoes are the perfect comfort food. Easy, fast AND delicious!!

These potatoes make the perfect side dish, or could even be put out as a main course by either adding some diced ham, leftover steak, or just serve them up vegetarian style. They are only limited by your imagination and as in all cooking, you should taste, taste, taste, until you have what you want in your dish. My recipe is just a guideline. Make it what you want it to be!

Seriously delicious!

  1. After all of your ingredients are together and ready, lets add the olive oil to a hot stock pot. Throw in the garlic salt and pepper as well, so that they get nice and toasty.
  2. Next you will want to add the minced garlic and onions. Stirring frequently at a medium high heat until they are caramelized.
  3. Stir in the flour and let it cook. You want it to be a light golden brown color.
  4. Slowly pour in your Half and Half or milk. You are aiming for a gravy like texture.
  5. Add the cheddar. Stir it in until it's melted thru out.
  6. Stir in the sliced potatoes, making sure that all of the potatoes are covered with the gooey, but delicious, cheese sauce.
  7. Remove from heat and pour the potato and cheese sauce mixture into a large baking dish. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees until you have a nice brown crust on top and the potatoes are tender.
