Are you in the mood for something carb loaded, cheesy, and delicious? I’ve got just the thing! Feast your eyes on this Scalloped Potatoes recipe. Then, go make it for dinner!
This casserole has all the important food groups covered like potatoes, chicken, and cheese. You could choose a vegetable to add to this recipe to make it a one-dish meal. I wanted to have a fighting chance at getting my kids to eat it (they are already very leery of casseroles), so I just served steamed green beans with butter and lemon pepper on the side. If your family is less picky than mine, you could try adding broccoli, brussels sprouts, or another veggie you like. Let me know how that goes if you do it!
This casserole is amazing for making ahead and baking or reheating later. The leftovers heat up perfectly in the microwave too. You do need to plan ahead for this one since it needs to bake for over an hour, but that time is all hands off. It only takes 15-20 minutes to get it ready for the oven, and then it’s hands off cooking. (That’s my favorite kind of cooking!)
Before you ask, I would say that yes, you can use frozen potatoes in this recipe. I would opt for cubed potatoes O’brien (who is O’brien anyway??) or shredded hashbrown potatoes. Just sub them in for the sliced fresh potatoes in the recipe, and that should work fine. Leave me a comment to let me know how you end up making yours and how you liked it!
I just know you will love these cheesy baked casseroles too!
