The Best-Ever Creamy Scalloped Potatoes Recipe
My Creamy Scalloped Potatoes Recipe
The Best-Ever Creamy Scalloped Potatoes Recipe is Umm, Umm, Good! These potatoes are exactly what I think of when I think of comfort food and they are soooo delicious. My sister-in-law quite likes them and she, believe it or not, does not like scalloped potatoes! These ones are rich and it must be the presence of these extra special ingredients that makes them tasty and different to her.
I have been making these scalloped potatoes for years...since I discovered the recipe in a in April of 1993. My family loves it as have all our guests to whom we have served it. My potato-loving son has always loved it. My other son, who does not love potatoes, always opted for the homemade country seed bread instead of the potatoes...until recently when he has discovered he has a taste for this delicious recipe, too.

The Best-Ever Scalloped Potatoes are a perfect accompaniment to your Easter Dinner, New Year's Dinner, Christmas Dinner or any special occasion meal. We always serve them with The Best-Ever Glazed Baked Ham. We do tend to reserve this recipe for special occasions because of its richness but there is no reason you could not prepare this recipe for creamy potatoes on a more regular basis!
Picture by me.
What Potatoes Are Best For Scalloped Potatoes?
My Mother-in-Law always matched the correct type of potatoes the the method that she was preparing them. I have always used whatever I have on hand except, that is, for this recipe. For this recipe, I go out of my way to buy Yukon Gold potatoes. I think they are perfect for this recipe and no others will do!
Can You Make Scalloped Potatoes Ahead of Time?
I do not believe you should make this recipe ahead of time. However, on the day of your meal you could prepare the potatoes and soak them in a bowl of water and you could prepare the rest of the ingredients and store them in the fridge.

Do You Like Scalloped Potatoes?
Amazon customer Grace Doll is correct when she says that the $10 or so that this peeler costs is a small investment for something that is so useful. She even goes so far as to suggest that you will wonder why you waited so long to buy a GOOD potato peeler.
Oxo Good Grips Peeler
Top-rated vegetable peeler makes preparing potatoes easy.
This Amazon's bestselling vegetable peeler PLUS it has received more five-star reviews than any other vegetable peeler available on Amazon. In my opinion, that makes it a pretty darn good peeler.

The Best Potato Cookbooks
Hundreds of ways to turn the potato into a meal and/or delicious side dish.
I believe that Amazon's customer reviews are a great way to judge the quality of a cookbook. I've included a quote from a customer for each of these cookbooks. If the book is out-of-print, it is probably still available through Amazon's private sellers at a used price. You can visit any of these items for more information simply by clicking on the link shown in blue, the picture or the 'buy now' button. Doing so will NOT obligate you to purchase the book.
