Baked scalloped potatoes in a white baking dish with a wooden spoon.

Scalloped Potatoes

Scalloped Potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes. They are so cheesy, garlicky, and pack with so much flavor. Best of all they go with just about any meal and perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, or just for a family dinner.
