Easy scalloped potatoes recipe using red potatoes and a creamy homemade sauce that thickens as you bake.


  • 2 lb. red potatoes
  • 1 Cup chicken broth
  • 1 Cup sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/3 Cup sour cream
  • 1/3 Cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • fresh cracked black pepper


  1. In a 13×9 pan lightly greased with olive oil, slice up your red potatoes (skin-on) and layer them accordion style.  Sprinkle the potatoes with ¼ tsp. salt and pepper and bake the potatoes (uncovered) in a preheated 450˚ F oven for 15 minutes.
  2. While the potatoes are baking, combine all remaining ingredients into a blender, including the remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and only 1/3 cup of cheese. (The remaining 2/3 cup cheese will be used for our topping) Blend it all until pureed.
  3. When the timer goes off, pour the cream sauce over the potatoes and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  4. Top the potatoes with the reserved 2/3 cup cheese and bake for a final 5 minutes.  Garnish with fresh cut chives (optional) and allow the potatoes to cool for 10 minutes before serving. The sauce will thicken up.


Adaptations: Add a garlic clove to the blender as well

To Make Vegetarian: Substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth.

Double Recipe: This recipe can easily be doubled.  Use an 11×17″ pan with your doubled recipe.
