Easy Scalloped Potatoes

I have tried many recipes for scalloped potatoes and I always love them.  This recipe was by far the easiest and it tastes just as delicious.  I will give away my secret TILLAMOOK cheese!!!!  Tillamook Extra Sharp White Cheddar Cheese is a girls best friend!  If you have never tried this cheese you HAVE TOO!  When I was preggo my favorite snack was an English Muffin with pb&j topped with this cheese.  I know you are thinking only a pregnant woman would like this however, a non preggo co-worker made it for me and I fell in love.  Maybe I will do a blog post on it for fun. 

  • 4 Yukon gold potatoes, thinly sliced ( blanch in boiling water for 3-5 minutes to shorten baking time)
  • 2 cups Tillamook Extra Sharp White Cheddar Cheese, grated (if you do not have Tillamook I know Cracker Barrel makes one too!)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
  • cooking spray

Directions:  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spray 9 by 9 baking dish with non stick spray.  In a bowl combine cream, milk, and all seasonings and whisk together.  Cover the bottom of the baking dish with 1/2 of the potatoes overlapping slightly.  Pour half the cream over them and top with 1/2 the cheese and repeat the layers ending with cheese.  Sprinkle with a little extra pepper and paprika.  Bake for 30 minutes covered then 30 minutes uncovered. 


  1. Made these and they are fabulous. I did not have white cheese so I used 3 different kinds of cheese and they were wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It's a keeper.

    1. So glad you liked them! You must try them with the extra sharp white cheddar if you get the chance, AMAZING. Thanks for trying the recipe.

  2. Does blanching the potatoes keep them from turning brown if I am trying to put this together to cook later?

  3. So sorry this is so late. I was off my phone for the weekend. Blanching will help with the coloring and it will also keep them cook faster.
