Simple scalloped potatoes

The secret to this dish is slicing your potatoes thin and adding lots and lots of your favorite cheese!

Simple scalloped potatoes


  • Cooking spray
  • 3 large Idaho potatoes, very thinly sliced and peels left on
  • 3 cups grated cheese (we used 2 types of cheese: 2 cups Monterey Jack and 1 cup smoked Gouda)
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped chives
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • Aluminum foil


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray. Layer potato slices slightly overlapping, top with cheese and a few chives and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Repeat two more times, making three layers of potatoes and three layers of cheese and chives.
  3. Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  4. Remove foil and continue cooking uncovered an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until the top turns golden brown and the sides are bubbly.

I'm making these tonight! I saw this recipe a few weeks back and have had it on my list of things to make for awhile now. Had to wait until all the mashed potato thanksgiving leftovers were gone, though.
