7 Spins on Scalloped Potatoes to Try This Easter

by in Holidays, Recipes, April 14th, 2017

It’s nearly impossible to disappoint with scalloped potatoes considering the dish, like all gratins, is built on a foundation of cheese, cheese and more cheese. Most importantly, it makes an excellent companion to hearty mains, like roast chicken, lamb, pork tenderloin and ham. But despite its versatility and first-rate sidekick potential, scalloped potatoes — in all of their creamy extravagance — appear on our tables just a handful of times throughout the year: On Thanksgiving, sometimes on Christmas, and maybe again on Easter. Luckily for us, Easter is coming right up, so treat yourself and your guests to this classic potato side by choosing from one of our many holiday-worthy recipes.
