Combine sliced potatoes and soup in a large bowl. Layer half of the potato and soup mixture into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. 

Dot the scalloped potato recipe with half of the butter and sprinkle with half of the Cheddar cheese. Repeat the layers using all ingredients.

Best Scalloped Potatoes Recipe With Bacon

Adding bacon, onion, garlic, onions or any of a number of other "fixings" to your best scalloped potatoes recipe is a great way to get rave reviews for your creative cooking. Here is one of our favorite variations:

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 2 small onions, sliced
  • 3 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

Directions:

Melt butter in a small saucepan. Stir the in flour and salt until smoothly blended. Gradually add the milk. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes or until thickened.

Layer the potatoes and onions into a greased 1-qt. baking dish. Pour the white sauce over the top of the potatoes and onions. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 65-75 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with the cooked and crumbled bacon. 


Tips for Perfect Scalloped Potatoes:

  • Add extra flavor by rubbing your baking pan with garlic before adding your other ingredients
  • Firm, "waxy" potatoes like Red Bliss or Yukon Gold make the best scalloped potatoes.
  • Scalloped potato recipes call for a variety of liquids -- milk, cream, soup mixes, etc. (including those above).We have had the best results with using half and half in place of other liquids.
  • Avoid making the layers of potatoes and cheese more than three levels deep.
  • During the baking process, check that the top layer is not browning too much. You may need to baste your scalloped potato recipe with the cooking liquid.
