I have never met anyone who doesn’t like scalloped potatoes. I mean what not to like especially when cooked like this – creamy, cheesy, a total comfort food! You might think that it’s difficult to make but you are completely wrong. The best cheesy scalloped potatoes are very easy to put together and quick to make. Just don’t forget to top it with extra cheese and you are all set, and ready for a delicious and satisfying dinner. These potatoes will put a smile on everyone’s faces; they are savory, cheesy, and hearty. They make an awesome side dish for almost any dinner. They are extremely tasty, satisfying even, you might want to eat them on their own (I do and my kids do too). Believe me or not but whenever I serve this, it’s gone in a blink. No leftovers, just dirty dishes.
