Holiday Double Cheese Scalloped Potatoes

Who's the genius who forgot to take a photo of this dish? Trust me, it looked and tasted good.
Meanwhile, enjoy this potato stand-in. 
In our late 30s, we've cut out a lot of the crap in our house because our asses don't need it. Holidays are a whole different ballgame though. This dish is holiday fare, through and through. MFD always requests it at Easter. He loves the scalloped potatoes and I refuse to use the box, so this is where we're at with that. If you're on that same wavelength, save or pin this for the future!

Double Cheese Scalloped Potatoes

by Life According to Steph
  • 2 TBS chopped fresh dill
  • 3 TBS chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 lb Yukon gold potatoes peeled, thinly sliced, 8 cups
  • 2.5C fat free half & half
  • 1TBS ground mustard
  • 1.5TSP salt
  • 1/4TSP pepper
  • 2.5 cups shredded sharp cheddar
  • 2.5 cups shredded havarti dill
Preheat oven to 325. Coat a shallow 3 quart baking dish with cooking spray.

Combine dill and parsley in a bowl and set aside. I use a mandolin for the potatoes but you can use a knife as well - just make sure they're thin.

In large pot, combine potatoes, half & half, mustard, salt, and pepper. Over medium high, bring just to boil, stirring occasionally, and cook about five minutes.

Using a slotted spoon, transfer half of the potatoes to the baking dish. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of the dill/parsley mixture, then add 1 cup of each cheese.

Top with the remaining potatoes, a few spoonfuls of the half and half mixture around the edges, one tablespoon of the dill mixture, and the remaining cheeses. Use as much or as little cheese as you want.

Bake until tender and golden, 40-45 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining dill mixture and serve.

  2. Ha. Love the potato stand in. This sounds pret-ty amazing. It's definitely going on my list of new recipes to try. But I won't be using a mandolin though - I still have the scar on my knuckle from the last time I tried to use one of those..

  14. I'm all about potatoes and doubly so when cheese is involved. This looks absolutely amazing!

  15. In my opinion- that's the whole point of dieting!!! Most of the time reigning it in = less guilt when you indulge. And I love that part of it. I also love any potato dish and this sounds extremely amazing. YUM.

  16. Yum! Scalloped potatoes are always my favorite part of the holidays. I'm definitely trying this recipe soon.

  17. These sound like I probably need to have them for dinner.

  18. Love scalloped potatoes but never made it from scratch! I bet the Havarti + Cheddar combination tastes amazing.

  20. Double cheese makes everything taste better, doesn't it??? And potatoes is my favorite carb. Mmmmmm

  21. YUM! Jacob loves my scalloped potatoes (mine has ham in it), but I don't make it often enough. Yours sounds so good! I'm gonna try it.

  22. Pinning that potato picture just made me LOL.

  23. Hahah, "because our asses don't need it", amen, sista. I can always get behind scalloped potatoes, though!

  24. I read this primarily to discover what you use to slice potatoes, because they dull my knives faster than anything else! Had to look up what a mandolin is, but now I know something I did not know this morning.

  25. Sounds so tasty! What's not to love about potatoes and cheese??

  26. This sounds wonderful. I have never met a cheesy potato dish I did not like and want to shove into my mouth like it was my last meal though. Will definitely pin for later!

  27. Recipe seems easy... definitely Jessica do-able. The box is disgusting....

  28. yum! I love golden potatoes and definitely never use them as much as I should!

  29. LOOOOVE cheesy taters. I will even eat them out of the box. If it has the words cheese and potatoes in it, I will eat it. Never had havarti in them though! MMMM!
