Hey there, fellow foodies! Get ready to make some room on your holiday table for these Cheesy Garlic Scalloped Potatoes. They’re the ultimate side dish for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Imagine layers of soft, thinly-sliced potatoes, each smothered in a dreamy, garlicky cheese sauce. It’s like a hug in a casserole dish.

Seriously, who can say no to all that cheesy goodness? I know I can’t. Let’s dig in and enjoy every cheesy bite!

Ingredients

  • 2.5-3 lbs yukon potatoes
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 8-10 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup cheddar shredded
  • 1 cup mozzarella shredded
  • 3/4 cup parmesan grated

Instructions

1. Begin by lovingly scrubbing your Yukon potatoes. Their golden skins, thin and delicate, need not be peeled. Thinly slice them, each slice a testament to precision, about 1/8 inch thin.

2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, a warm embrace waiting to cradle our dish.

3. In a medium pot, introduce the butter. As it melts into a golden pool, add your onions and garlic. This is where the magic begins – sauté them just until they’re soft, basking in the butter’s warmth, but careful not to let them brown.

4. Whisk in the flour, watching it blend seamlessly with the butter. Now, pour in the milk, infused with herbs, along with the chicken broth. Add the thyme and salt, stirring as the mixture comes to a gentle boil, thickening to a sauce that promises to enrobe the potatoes in creamy goodness.

5. Turn off the heat. Introduce the cheddar, mozzarella, and Parmesan, stirring to welcome them into the warm sauce. They don’t need to melt completely – they have a journey ahead.

6. Grease your 9″ x 13″ casserole dish, and begin the layering. Potatoes, cheese sauce, and repeat, building layers like a culinary architect, until all are nestled in.

7. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Then unveil and continue baking for another 35-45 minutes, until it transforms into a bubbly, golden-brown masterpiece.

8. Let it rest for 10 minutes – patience, for it is worth the wait.

Notes

– To ensure the potatoes are cooked to perfection, slice them thin and spread them evenly, making sure each slice is kissed by the cheese sauce. This is the secret to their tenderness.
