PARMESAN SCALLOPED POTATOES — Classic scalloped potatoes made with real cream and Parmesan cheese.
Scalloped potatoes are just so good! And this Parmesan Scalloped Potatoes recipe is simple, delicious and always a crowd pleaser.
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! ~ Audrey
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.
And since these potatoes are pretty amazing, it’s really hard to say no to seconds! Hence their special occasion status.
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.
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. ~ Amy
I definitely recommend using a food processor or a mandoline to slice your potatoes. You’ll get nice, thin slices that way, and it will save you a ton of time.

Tips for Choosing and Storing Potatoes
Appearance: Look for clean, smooth potatoes with a firm texture and no cuts, bruises or discoloration. Potatoes that feel soft or squishy have probably already started going bad.
If your potatoes start to sprout, you can still eat them. Simply remove and discard any sprouts, which are not edible.
Color: Try to avoid green potatoes, which is the result of a chemical called solanine that makes the potatoes taste bitter. If you do have green spot on your potatoes, cut those away before eating them. When eaten in large quantities, solanine can cause gastrointestinal discomfort.
Storing: Store potatoes in a dark, well ventilated area, preferably between 45 and 55 degrees. Perforated plastic bags or paper bags offer the best environment for extending shelf-life. Don’t wash potatoes until you’re ready to use them.
