How to Make The Best Scalloped Potatoes | The Stay At Home Chef


Today on The Stay At Home Chef I’m showing
you how to make Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes. I love scalloped potatoes! They are total comfort food. Add on a little extra cheese and you have an indulgent dish that’s perfect for those long winter months and all of those holidays
in between where you need delicious tasty side dishes. We’re going to start by peeling our Russet
potatoes. Now I want to show you a little trick that
I use. Now it’s really simple. I lay down a paper
towel so that as I am peeling my potatoes all of the peels end up on the paper towel so that when we’re done clean up is a total
breeze. It’s simple, but it’s effective and it
makes life just a little bit easier. Next we need to slice all of our potatoes
nice and thin. The easiest way to do this is with a food
processor. You can also use a mandoline, or slice it by hand with a knife. That’s probably the hardest way to do it,
but it can be done. I run mine through the food processor because
it is so fast. I honestly don’t know how I lived before
a food processor. We’re going to take all of these sliced
potatoes, and you can see that they are nice and thin, And we’re going to pour them all into a
large mixing bowl. Make sure you get them all out. Then pour on 1 cup of heavy cream And then we’ll add some cheesy goodness
with ½ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese. And you want to make sure you are using freshly
grated, not that stuff from the plastic can. Then we’re going to season things up with 2 cloves of minced garlic, ½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg, Adn ¼ teaspoon of black pepper, And I just use tongs to toss this all together. You want to give this a good toss until you
feel like all of the spices and garlic and everything
are evenly dispersed. Then, we’re going to pour all of this into
a lightly greased 9×9 baking dish. Now if you want to be all fancy, you can place each slice individually and create nice little rows and nice little
layers and be all fancy But I’m all about keeping life simple because this is comfort food for me. So I’m just dumping it in the pan. Then I’m going to take some sharp cheddar
cheese and sprinkle it on top to add in some extra cheesy goodness that I promised. And that’s it. I bet you never knew that scalloped potatoes could be so easy to put together. Next we’re going to bake this in a 350 degree
oven for about 1 hour Or until your potatoes are tender which will depend on how thin you were able to cut them so a djust the cooking time accordingly. If you’re worried about the cheese browning too much on top because your oven is a “browner” simply place a piece of aluminum foil loosely
over the top. This will stop the cheese from browning anymore and you can finish baking your potatoes until
they are tender. And then you’re ready to eat. Thanks for watching! You can find the full written recipe in the

  17. Classically speaking, Scalloped Potatoes do not have cheese in them, Au Gratin Potatoes on the other hand does have cheese incorporated into and topped with it. I add either chopped or shredded onion to both of my Scalloped and Au Gratin recipes.
    I think that you are a wonderful cook, and a beautiful person inside and out, so please don’t let the haters affect you. This comes from a gay chef, keep your head held high love.

  22. you lost me at nutmeg

  23. I didn't know a food processor would work for slicing potatoes! 😍 This looks delicious!

  24. heavy cream substitute?

  25. I failed at scalloped potatoes before… I will try your recipe! Could you offer any advice on whether russet is the preferred potato over the golden potato? Thanks…

  26. I have really enjoyed your recipes so thank you. I did have a little trouble with this one. I had to bake the potatoes much longer than an hour. They were thinly sliced with processor, however I did have aluminum foil loosely over the casserole dish the entire time they were in the oven. Was that my mistake?

  27. Scalloped potatoes are baked in a creamy white sauce and NO cheese. What you made is potatoes au gratin! which has cheese. Get it right, girls!!

  28. Scalloped potatoes don't have cheese.

  29. I made your recipe the other night with some fried porkchops and corn!! It was delicious🌹
