scalloped potatoes

Scalloped potatoes is a side dish that we save for special occasions and holidays.  It’s creamy, decadent and oh so rich.  That’s exactly the reason why we can’t have this daily, but it’s definitely worth the occasional splurge!  Thinly sliced Yukon Gold Potatoes are layered in a baking dish, sprinkled with salt, pepper, cheddar and jack cheese and then another layer of potatoes, seasonings and cheese.   Heavy cream and butter is then poured on top of the potatoes and then baked.  The results are delicious.  The potatoes are like a blank canvas, absorbing all the luscious creaminess from the cream and the butter and cheese adds a savory bite to the dish.   It’s a special side dish that surely will impress.  The great part is that you can assemble this ahead of time or even bake it off earlier in the day.  Just bake or warm it up in the oven when you’re ready to serve.  We made this dish last Christmas and Easter and it’s always a favorite with our families.
