Scalloped Potatoes are classically delicious and cheesy. Thinly sliced potatoes are layered together with a decadent cream sauce and topped with cheddar cheese, Baked until golden brown and bubbly, these scalloped potatoes are comforting, delicious and shareable!


  • 5 pounds potatoes (russet or gold)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 12 oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Peel and thinly slice the potatoes into 1/4 inch slices using a mandoline or a sharp knife. Set aside.
  2. Heat the butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Whisk in the flour to create a roux, allowing to cook for about 30 seconds. Whisk in the heavy cream and reduce the heat to low.
  3. Bring to a low simmer and whisk in 4 oz (about half a cup) of the shredded cheese, saving the rest for topping. Whisk in the paprika, salt and pepper until smooth and the cheese has melted and thickened the sauce.
  4. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Assemble the scalloped potatoes by arranging a layer of sliced potatoes on the bottom of a 9×13 pan, pouring over a third of the sauce, adding another layer of potatoes and then sauce and repeating until the casserole dish is full. Making sure to end with a sauce layer.
  5. Evenly spread the remaining cheese over the top, loosely cover with foil and bake for about 40 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 35-40 minutes, or until the dish is bubbly and golden brown. Enjoy!
