Creamy Parmesan Scalloped Potatoes

These scalloped potatoes are tender, creamy and so delicious!  The parmesan cheese adds such amazing flavor and these are a must make side dish! 


I love that daylight savings has come and spring is right around the corner!  The sun is out longer and it is starting to warm up.  Well.  It was starting to warm up.  And then it snowed.  But that is a Utah spring for you.  It shows us a little sun and warmth so that we don’t lose our minds and then it snows.  Luckily the sun is back out and it is supposed to warm up again and we are going to take full advantage of it!

With spring comes Easter and we always look forward to Easter dinner.  We love scalloped potatoes at our house and my son requests them every week!  I usually make creamy cheddar scalloped potatoes but I decided to change it up a little.  These Creamy Parmesan Scalloped Potatoes became an instant favorite!

They are SO creamy and delicious.  And you are going to love the parmesan cheese inside.  They baked to tender potato perfection and the top got this delicious crisp parmesan crust.  That was my favorite part!  Then you dig in to the creamy, delicious and cheesy layers.


Whether you are making these for Easter dinner or any family dinner, you are going to LOVE these as much as we did!

  1. These take much longer to bake than the time on the recipe! Next time I will par boil my potatoes before putting in the baking pan to expedite the baking time. At this rate I hope they are done baking before tomorrow(Easter)!!!!!!

    1. Yes it all really depends on the thickness of your potatoes. If you don’t par boil them you have to slice them pretty thin for the time that I recommended. 🙂

  2. We made these for Christmas Eve Dinner. We were happy with the flavor for sure, but wow! these took forever to cook in a 350 oven. covered. I would say total bake time with raised temp to 400 degrees was an hour and half. Would make again but definitely par boil potatoes if you want to bake for only 45 minutes!
