Scalloped Potatoes

Learn how to make creamy, cheesy, delicious scalloped potatoes with this simple recipe.  It’s always a crowd pleaser!

Scalloped Potatoes Recipe -- creamy, cheesy, irresistibly delicious, and made lighter with a few simple tweaks |

I know that most of you probably have your Easter dinner menus all planned out and grocery-shopped already.  But just in case there are any procrastinators out there (ahem, like me), I thought I’d sneak one more recipe in before the big day.  Because somehow in five years of blogging, I still have never a recipe for one of my favorite holiday side dishes, and it’s about freaking time.

Yes.  We’re finally talking scalloped potatoes today on Gimme Some Oven!

In my world, these spuds are a non-negotiable part of Easter dinner.  You’ve gotta make a ham, devil up some eggs, bake some carrots into a cake, and — if you’re feeling fancy — maybe even decorate some truffles for dessert.  But without fail, the dish that always has everyone coming back for seconds is that irresistibly creamy, cheesy, garlicky pan of scalloped potatoes.  I’ve never met a person who doesn’t go crazy over this dish.


While I’m a traditionalist with serving scalloped potatoes on Easter, I don’t stick with the traditional recipe that’s usually overflowing with cups of heavy cream, gobs of butter, and pounds of starchy Russet potatoes.  No offense to any traditionalists out there, but I can make a healthier version of this rich and creamy and cheesy dish with a few simple tweaks.  Let me show you…

Scalloped Potatoes Recipe -- creamy, cheesy, irresistibly delicious, and made lighter with a few simple tweaks |

First off, the first step to making delicious and velvety scalloped potatoes in my book is to nix the Russet potatoes and replace them with my favorite spuds — Yukon golds.  Grab a few pounds of those beauties, and slice them nice and thin so that they will cook through in a baking pan.

Then whip up your sauce.  I forgot to snap a pic of the sauce, but let me tell you what’s in

  • a few tablespoons of butter (instead of an entire stick)
  • lots of garlic (a healthy flavor booster)
  • one small onion (for even more flavor)
  • a few tablespoons of flour (to make a roux and thicken things up)
  • salt + pepper + fresh thyme (traditional seasonings)
  • …and a mixture of chicken or veggie stock + low-fat milk (in place of heavy cream)

That last item is key for this recipe.  The chicken stock adds extra flavor, the milk makes things nice and creamy, and the roux thickens things up without having to add in tons of heavy cream.  Trust me, you won’t even notice the missing cream.

To assemble the casserole, just layer half of your potatoes in a greased baking dish.  Pour half of the sauce on top of them, sprinkled with some Parmesan and sharp cheddar.  Then layer on the second half of the potatoes, topped with the remaining sauce and cheddar.  Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake (covered) for 30 minutes.  Then remove the foil and let the potatoes crisp up (uncovered) for the final 25-30 minutes until they’re soft and cooked through and crispy on top.

The result?

Perfect scalloped potatoes.

I stand by it.  These guys are tender on the bottom, slightly crispy on top, bubbling over with creamy and cheesy deliciousness, and irresistibly GOOD.  They still won’t win any awards qualifying as “healthy” per se, but hey, they’re still much healthier than many of the recipes that were part of our childhoods, amen?

The other bonus to this recipe?  It only requires 15 or so minutes of prep time.  So you can spend more of your time on Easter hanging out with your family and friends, and less time tucked away in a steamy kitchen.

Win = WIN.

Scalloped Potatoes

This classic scalloped potatoes recipe is made lighter with milk instead of heavy cream, delicious Yukon gold potatoes, and lots of garlic and Parmesan and cheddar to make them irresistibly delicious.


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small white or yellow onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable stock
  • 2 cups milk (I used 2% low-fat milk)
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, divided
  • 4 pounds Yukon Gold Potatoes, sliced into 1/8-inch rounds (and peeled beforehand, if desired)
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly-grated sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup freshly-grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Melt butter in a large saute pan over medium-high heat.  Add onion, and saute for 4-5 minutes until soft and translucent.  Add garlic and saute for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.  Stir in the flour until it is evenly combined and saute for an additional 1-minute.  Pour in the stock, and whisk until combined.  Add in the milk, salt, pepper, and 1 teaspoon thyme, and whisk until combined.  Continue cooking for an additional 1-2 minutes until the sauce comes to a simmer (not a boil) and thickens.  Then remove from heat and set aside.

Meanwhile, grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.  Then spread half of the sliced potatoes in an even layer on the bottom of the pan.  Top evenly with half of the cream sauce, the sprinkle evenly with 1 cup of the shredded cheddar cheese, and all of the Parmesan cheese.  Top evenly with the remaining sliced potatoes, the remaining half of the cream sauce, and the remaining 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese.

Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.  Then remove the foil and bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbly and the potatoes are cooked through.

Remove and sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon thyme.  Serve warm.

    At 55 years old I’d given up on making scalloped potatoes due to the hit or miss experience I’d had. I braved it out and made it for Easter Dinner (gasp) for family (true foodies -gasp again) and they were a SMASH from the grandkids on up to the adults. It was THE most commented about food item I served. My husband’s idea of a good compliment is ‘not bad’. He got up for seconds saying ‘these potatoes are really, really good!’ So yummy I’m making them again today just for the fun of it. Thanks for this recipe!

    These all looked and smelled delicious but i couldn’t find yukon potatoes, so i used white/gold potatoes instead and after 1 hour or so in the oven they were still not cooked? i wonder if i should have boiled them before slicing they would cook evenly and be soft and not crunchy and raw. But even after that i really liked the cream sauce and im probably going to use it for pasta one of these days :0 

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — April 25th, 2016 @ 5:19 pm

      Hi Andrea! Oh no, we’re so sorry to hear that! Hmmm, yukon gold potatoes are creamier and more tender, so it could be that the white/gold potatoes just needed more time, or that they should have been boiled a bit beforehand. We haven’t had any problems with the yukon golds though. We’re glad you enjoyed the sauce! Hopefully you can give this another try with the yukons and it will be better next time!

    I’ve made these before – and LOVED them.  They were such a hit, and so easy to make!  I want to make them again for a potluck, could you make ahead before baking and let it set in the fridge for a few hours?  Or would the potatoes get soggy sitting in the sauce?  Thanks!

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — May 15th, 2016 @ 5:28 pm

      Thanks Sam — we’re so glad to hear that! We wouldn’t really recommend making these ahead of time though, as the potatoes will oxidize and turn greyish brown. :(

    I made this for my roommates (I’m a college student) and they went bananas! I made three pans and there is only half a pan left. Amazing recipe that does not demand a lot for busy people like me. I substituted the thyme with oregano and it actually worked out pretty successfully too – bringing a more lady flavor. Thanks so much for sharing!!

    What flour would you use to make this gluten free? Would rice flour work?

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — June 26th, 2016 @ 9:14 am

      Hi Chantal! We haven’t experimented with gluten-free floors in this dish but we think your best bets might be to try cornstarch, arrowroot powder, a gluten-free flour blend. You could try rice flour, we’re just not as familiar with that one. We hope this helps!

  15. Leanne — July 8, 2016 @ 8:11 am (#)

    Do you think this would work with red potatoes? I normally don’t buy them but happen to have a full bag right now. I made this before with yukon gold and absolutely loved it and don’t want to risk compromising the deliciousness :)

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — July 10th, 2016 @ 9:24 pm

      Hi Leanne! We think Yukon golds work best for scalloped potatoes (they’re just creamier), but you can definitely use red potatoes if that’s what you have.

      We’re glad you enjoyed it! We’re not sure why it turned out a little runny — perhaps the sauce needed to cook longer to thicken more? Anyway, we’re glad the breadcrumbs helped!

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — September 13th, 2016 @ 9:58 am

      Hi Tami! Unfortunately we haven’t tried this recipe in a crock pot. There are recipes for crock pot scalloped potatoes out there (like this one), though it’s different because this recipe is more like a gratin (since it’s baked with the milk and has the melted cheese on top). Also, you’d still want to sauté the onion, butter and garlic together beforehand, for maximum flavor. You could try to follow the method in the other recipe, though our recipe calls for more liquid, so we’re not sure how it would turn out. If you do experiment with this, definitely let us know how it turns out!

    At my house if you are going to eat something it should be made from scratch and full of the best flavors. I only had a red onion chopped that up and used it. My husband said these were some of the best scalloped potatoes he has ever had. That is saying a lot from a person that is a food snob.

      Hi Sheryl! You could try to freeze this but we wouldn’t recommend it because of the delicate potatoes and the high dairy content. Dishes with a lot of dairy typically don’t freeze very well and these potatoes would likely get mushy. We hope this helps though and that you enjoy the recipe!

    Very nice recipe for scalloped potatoes. I like that you’ve cut the amount of fat and cholesterol for those of us who love these, but really don’t want that much cholesterol. However, where I come from – If scalloped potatoes have cheese in or on them, they’re called Potatoes Au Gratin. Mom never put cheese unless she wanted to call them ‘au gratin’, and she *loved* cheese.
    I’m making some of these for my husband and myself for Thanksgiving this year (2016), and since it’s just the 2 of us, I cut the recipe by one third. Soaking the potatoes removes a lot of the natural starch in them. That’s probably why the recipe turned out watery for some who tried it. For potatoes you want to make into hash browns, soaking is how you get them nice and crispy. Perhaps you could work out an amount of roux for those who prefer to soak them first? For those who enjoy these, when making scalloped potatoes I always use my trusty “salad shooter”. It’s about the most handy small appliance in our kitchen for these, and for making home made hash browns, frittadas, etc.
    I’m looking forward to seeing more of your recipes, and what you do with them. Mahalo!

    I’m non dairy so although I loved scalloped potatoes I haven’t had these since all this intolerance happened after very nasty cancer op . So looking  at your tweaking I’m wondering if I couldn’t tweak more ! Using almond milk and cornflour to thicken instead of the usual roux method . I’m not sure how to replace the cheesy aspect so I might just see how much I CAN  tolerate . 
    Thanks gifbputting scalloped pots  back on my menu . I have no problem with starchy Russets and we don’t see Yukon gold over in Uk so I’ll carry in using those .. pics to come . I’ll let you know how that works out . The almond milk is very creamy anyway .

      We’re glad you enjoyed these, Steph! You could try the almond milk and cornflour, and you could use a vegan cheese, or just cut back on the amount of regular cheese you use. You could also use a lactose-free milk, such as Lactaid. We hope this helps — definitely let us know how everything turns out! :)

    Hi Ali. This looks amazing and I’m going to make them for Christmas dinner. But I have a question first. We’re trying to eat healthier (that’s why I’m not in favor of the boxed kind), so can I use fat free milk and reduced fat cheese?

      Hi Nancy! We’re sorry we didn’t get to your comment in time. You can use fat-free milk and reduced fat cheese for this. We hope you enjoy!

    How is this veggie w h en it includes chicken stock?

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — January 18th, 2017 @ 9:24 pm

      The recipe calls for vegetable stock or chicken stock, so if you use vegetable stock then it is vegetarian. We hope you enjoy!
