sometimes you just gotta indulge. this is comfort food at its best.

it was one of several delish side dishes that we served on the dinner table on thanksgiving weekend. (yes, i’m still reminiscing about all that wonderful food — the turkey dinner was that memorable.) adapted from a recipe in taste of home, this cheesy, oh-so-rich potato dish had everyone coming back for seconds. try this simple recipe and i’m sure you will, too! :)

prep ingredients:
– 6 large potatoes (peeled, thinly sliced into scallops)
– 1 cup cheddar cheese (grated)
– 1 cup monterey jack cheese (grated)
– 1/2 cup fresh italian parsley (rough chop)

cook potatoes:
– melt 2-3 tbsp unsalted butter in a large, non-stick pot
– add potatoes and cook until slightly tender & golden brown
– sprinkle a dash of sea salt
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– pour 1 cup skim milk over potatoes
– cover pot w/ lid & boil potatoes until milk is absorbed
– add cheddar cheese & monterey jack cheese
– melt cheese w/ potatoes, stirring frequently

food styling:
– transfer cheesy scalloped potatoes to a serving bowl
– garnish w/ fresh italian parsley
– serve warm
– pairs well w/ turkey dinner (gobble, gobble!)

adapted from taste of home

  1. These look awesome! I’ll have to make these for a side next week!


  2. I probably indulge too much. These potatoes look so hearty…I think I’d be going back for a third helping. :)


  3. The German in me can never turn down potatoes and the glutton in me would be having second helpings of this dish. Looks great!


    • well said, sportsglutton. :) i totally agree. potatoes, butter & cheese. so yum.
      btw, thanks for stopping by my blog! looking fwd to trying your oatmeal hazelnut cookie recipe sometime soon.
