The Best Scalloped Potatoes Ever!!!
It is always fun to read yet another claim for The Best Scalloped Potatoes Ever recipe. That is because every person who makes a scalloped potatoes recipe, usually has had that recipe passed down to them from their mother, their mother’s mother, or even further in their history, and so the emotional attachment to the recipe immediately precludes any other scalloped potatoes recipe from contention. And the funnier thing is that every one of these scalloped potatoes recipes is entirely delicious. And that is no exception with this best scalloped potatoes ever recipe, either!
There are a few things about this best scalloped potatoes ever recipe that do make it stand out and shine against the myriad other scalloped potatoes recipes that you might try (of course, still try them out! That is, in part, what makes cooking and baking so much fun). This scalloped potatoes recipe starts with Yukon gold potatoes, which are a fantastic potato to cook with. They have loads of great flavor and are a beautiful color both when they are raw as well as when they are cooked. For this particular recipe, keep the skin on the potato. The potato skin adds loads of fiber to the dish, a component of our daily diet that we too often neglect badly, and do not get enough of to eat each day. So leaving the skin on the potatoes for this recipe will contribute a good amount of this important nutrient.
Other ingredients that are interesting include two different kinds of complementary cheese. In this recipe, both Gruyere and Parmesan cheeses are used, which provide a robust flavor that will work well against the Yukon gold potatoes. Another ingredient that adds plenty of flavor is the stock that goes in to the scalloped potatoes recipe. You can use any stock that you might have in your freezer, or you can purchase ready-made stock at the local grocery store. Either way, this ingredient will really beef up this recipe. Minced rosemary is another really fabulous addition. Rosemary potatoes, made with rosemary and lemon and olive oil, is a fabulous dish on its own. Added here to the great cheese and the Yukon potatoes will really help to make this dish sing.
So there are plenty of great aspects to this claim of this recipe being the best scalloped potatoes ever recipe. And perhaps it is the best recipe ever. But, who cares? It is delicious, no matter what, and everyone in the family will just love eating scalloped potatoes for dinner. And they can be made especially elegant if you have a dish like the oval one that the site used in the baking of their scalloped potatoes.
