  • 4 large russet potatoes peeled
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9x9 or 2-quart baking dish.
  • Use a mandoline, sharp knife, or food processor to thinly slice your potatoes. Transfer all of the slices into a large mixing bowl.
  • Pour heavy cream over the potatoes and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Add in garlic, salt, nutmeg, and pepper. Toss together until cheese and seasonings are evenly dispersed.
  • Spread out into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour, until potatoes are tender. Serve hot.



PRO TIP: The baking time on scalloped potatoes ultimately depends on how thinly you were able to slice your potatoes. The estimate of 1 hour provided in the recipe is only an estimate. If you cut your potatoes on the thicker side, they may take 15-30 minutes longer. If you cut your potatoes paper thin, your casserole may be done after only 40 minutes. Please adjust the cooking time accordingly.
