Creamy scalloped potatoes, baked in a flavorful cream sauce, make an impressive and easy side dish to complement roasted or grilled meats and make any meal special.



4 large Yukon Gold potatoes, skin on

2 tablespoons salted butter

1 small onion, finely minced or grated

2 large garlic cloves, finely minced

1 heaping tablespoon all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon Kosher salt

½ teaspoon white pepper

1 cup heavy cream

1 tablespoon freshly minced herb of choice (parsley, chives, dill, thyme)

1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided


Spray a medium casserole dish with cooking spray.

With the medium slicing blade of a food processor, slice the potatoes into ⅛-inch slices.

Arrange the slices in the prepared baking dish.  Set aside.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter until foamy.

Add the onion and saute, stirring often, until translucent – about 7 minutes.

Dump in the garlic and cook for another minute.
