Seasoned Scalloped Potatoes

November 12, 2014Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2014

I love Seasoned Scalloped Potatoes. For me, they are one of my favorite comfort foods. In all actuality, potatoes in general are one of my favorite comfort foods. These lovely Seasoned Scalloped Potatoes are made with a gluten free cream sauce using milk, butter, and several different herbs and spices to provide flavor.

They start with a basic cream sauce, although I make mine different than most recipes. I also bake my potatoes covered for most of the baking time so they don’t get too brown while baking. One of the most important things to keep in mind when making this casserole is to slice the potatoes extremely thin. Otherwise, it will take a couple of hours to bake the potatoes all the way through. (No kidding).

I never grew up eating Scalloped Potatoes. My mom NEVER made them. I’m not sure why. We ate mashed potatoes most of the time, some times Mom would fry them, but that was mostly for breakfast, on rare occurrences she served them oven baked for French fries, and on special occasions Mom served double baked potatoes.

As far as I can remember, she never served potatoes scalloped or au Gratin. It was after I got married and moved out on my own that I started experimenting with potatoes this way as I started seeing them in cookbooks available at the time.

I love making Seasoned Scalloped Potatoes using regular or sweet potatoes–and the same goes for au Gratin. I enjoy sweet potatoes made that way, too, instead of just candied. The nice thing about these potatoes is you can add more seasoning if you desire, or omit what you don’t care for.

I will tell you that potatoes taste really well with paprika and dill weed, so if you’ve never tried those on potatoes before I highly recommend them. Potatoes are versatile. If you have another herb that you enjoy a lot, consider adding it as well.

If you’re looking for a tasty, gluten free alternative for a wonderful holiday casserole and side dish, give Seasoned Scalloped Potatoes a try. They’re thick, creamy, tasty, and oh, so comforting.

I initially posted this recipe in November 2014. While the recipe was good, I thought it needed a few changes. The main one being using 2% milk instead of half-and-half. The recipe was too thick the first time around. I also stuck with my favorite four seasonings for potatoes: parsley, garlic salt, dill weed and paprika. I also added some fresh snipped chives on top. I served Seasoned Scalloped Potatoes along with Swiss Steak to our Friday night care group. The potatoes were so delicious everyone had two servings!

We served Seasoned Scalloped Potatoes with Pizza Meat Loaf and Italian Zucchini the first time I made it. This time I served it with Swiss Steak.

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients.

I did not peel the potatoes but I did slice them much thinner than the first time around so they didn’t take quite so long to bake.

    Do you have a secret or a plan you could share when one dish is baked at 450· and the second dish bakes at 350·? I always find myself in this very predicament 80% of the time. I’m open to your advice, suggestions, etc.

    1. Teresa

      November 17, 2018 at 10:28 am

      Hi Kelly. I usually bake both at the lower temperature. Then I allow extra time for the one dish that’s usually baked at a higher temperature. Also remember, when you have multiple dishes in the oven at once (like for Thanksgiving), you may need to add extra time anyway because the air flow around the casseroles is restricted somewhat. It’s better to start a little earlier, and if they are done, turn the oven down to 200 degrees to hold the temperature. On the other hand, don’t start the casseroles so early that they dry out! If you have 4 or 5 casseroles in the oven at the same time, I would add at least 15-20 minutes to the cooking time. I hope this helps. P.S. Also, you may consider that there are several recipes and casseroles that are easily converted and cooked in crockpots. I’ve done that many times for the holidays when I ran out of oven space.

      So glad you and your hubby liked this dish. I have similar ones with seasoned mashed potatoes and seasoned oven fries. You may want to give them a try too. Thanks for letting me know.

    I had such high hopes for your site and you have so many recipes and so much enthusiasm but your skill doesn’t match. You didn’t even make a roux when you made these potatoes. I will end here, i read many more of your recipes and the seasoning were all so sadly wrong for what you were cooking, i realize clearly you are a home cook but one word of advise..when the cheese is curdling in the picture above.. Its NOT a good thing.

      Hi, Shawn. Thanks for your comments. I have never claimed to be gourmet cook or someone who’s been through culinary school. I’m a simple cook who learned to cook the hard way by trial and error. As for this recipe, I had no intention of making a roux when seasoning the potatoes because I’m not particularly fond of the taste of roux. (I have one recipe handed down from my husband’s grandmother that calls for a roux and that’s the ONLY recipe I make it in). I’m sorry you don’t approve of the way I season my foods. I try to season recipes with as much variety as possible so that every recipe doesn’t taste the same. Granted, I experiment in the process, but I can’t remember anyone ever turning up their noses at something I’ve made. I have found many combinations that have worked really well over the years. We have company over to our home almost weekly or I’m making food for others weekly. I have fed hundreds of families (no exaggeration) in the DFW area meals over the past 20 years and rarely have I ever heard anyone say they didn’t like what I served. So while you may not be a fan of my recipes, there are a lot of people here that love them.
