    Creamy Scalloped Potatoes

    You can make these ahead by baking them the day before and reheating them for about 30 minutes before serving. Or you can assemble the dish and refrigerate it then bake it the day of.

    Either method you choose just be sure to pull the dish from the refrigerator in plenty of time to allow it to come to room temperature or for at least a good 20 minutes before putting it in the oven.

    And did you know there is actually a difference between scalloped potatoes and potatoes au gratin??? I didn’t up until recently and that is partly why I changed the recipe.

    True scalloped potatoes will not have any cheese in them and au gratin will and sometimes even a breadcrumb topping. Who knew, right??
