Holiday Scalloped Potatoes

This recipe takes scalloped potatoes above and beyond the classic holiday version. Bathed in rich cream, seasoned with thyme, and slathered with melted cheese. A perfect side dish with some extra holiday magic.


This simple and delicious dish requires a few key ingredients... here are a few variations.

Shallots: I prefer the sweetness of shallots which gives dish a little extra magic, however caramelizing yellow onions would be an equally delicious option.

Thyme: Fresh is best always, however dried thyme would work in a pinch. Substitute 1 tablespoon dried for 2 tablespoons fresh.

Heavy Cream: The star of the show! I use AE Dairy only...made from local Iowa farmers. It's natural without stabilizers or added ingredients.

Cheese: Havarti and sharp white cheddar creates a delicious pairing with the thyme and shallots, but this could be substituted with other options such as Jarlsberg, Gruyere, or Fontina.

Sautéing up the onions with thyme and butter is an extra step, but I promise its worth it for the added flavor. These added details will wow your guests and make for an unforgettable holiday dish.
