Scalloped Potatoes au Gratin with Smoked Gouda and Cheddar Cheese

On the menu tonight – Scalloped Potatoes au Gratin!

I’ve seen so many pictures of Scalloped Potato dishes that I decided to make it. This isn’t a difficult dish to make, but it looks awesome – especially if you take the time to arrange the potato slices neatly. I didn’t have the time to arrange the slices in any particular shape this time.

The trick to this dish is getting the slices the same thickness. Take the help from your food processor or box grater to get perfectly uniform slices – about 1/8″. From there, all you have to do is add the cream and other ingredients to a large pan and cook the potatoes about 15 -18 minutes. Then, transfer the ingredients to your baking dish and bake. That’s it!

So, the next time you are serving potatoes, consider making them a little fancy and try my Scalloped Potatoes!
