Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Updated: Dec 19, 2021

Potatoes are a big part of my life. I'm sure if you cut me open you would see my potato heart beating and I would bleed mashed potatoes and cheese. I'm always looking at great potato recipes to try and experiment on my husband all the time. I remember last year my husband ate roasted potatoes 3 times a week until I perfected the recipes I was working on. But bless him he didn't complain about them at all.


These scalloped potatoes combine all my favourite savoury flavours: potatoes, cheese and cream sauce. Could you ask for anything better?

4 russet potatoes- peeled and cut into thin slices

1 onion- sliced
