Creamy scalloped potatoes make a delightful accompaniment to a steak or roast beef dinner, but are also delicious with grilled fish, roast chicken, or almost any meat protein.
Why try? Scalloped potatoes are a nice change of pace from the usual plain baked potatoes, french fries, or mashed. They make a meal more special.
Foodie Byte: If the potato slices discolor as they sit, put them in a bowl and cover with the cream and chicken broth.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 6


~ 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
~ 1 medium onion, minced
~ 2 medium garlic cloves, minced or pressed through a garlic press
~ 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
~ 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
~ 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
~ 2 1/2 pounds (about 5 medium) russet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/8" thick
~ 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
~ 1 cup heavy cream
~ 4 ounces Fontina cheese, shredded (1 cup)


1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

2. Melt the butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. When the foaming subsides, add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and lightly browned, about 4 minutes.

3. Add garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook for about 30 seconds.

4. Add potatoes, broth and cream and heat to simmer. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the potatoes are almost tender (a paring knife can be slipped into and out of a potato slice with some resistence), about 10 minutes.

5. Transfer the mixture to an 8-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Bake until the cream is bubbling around the edges and the top is golden brown, about 15 minutes.

6. Cool before serving.
