I really enjoying making my favourite childhood recipes for my family and my Nan’s Scalloped Potatoes recipe is one of my all time favourites. We used to love this as kids growing up and we would regularly have it as a side with our Sunday Roast or Lasagna (yep carb overload I know!) and during my uni days I used to love a bowl of these Scalloped Potatoes sprinkled with extra cheese (because you can never have enough cheese right?!) on a Sunday afternoon after a particularly big night!
This recipe is a little similar to my Cheesy Potato Bake, but it has a few less ingredients but still delivers on taste. Thanks to my Mr Four going through a fussy phase where he won’t eat a lot the foods he normally loves and my husband in training for a big bike race, I’m a little ashamed to admit that my three year old and I managed to work our way through this entire dish of Scalloped Potatoes in just 3 days (I’m going to blame those pesky pregnancy cravings) and we ate it with everything from Cauliflower Fritters, Steak and Veggies to Lasagna – another combo I’m blaming on pregnancy cravings!
If you really want to add some extra flavour to this Scalloped Potatoes recipe, then you can add a tablespoon of mustard (either dijon or seeded) and some parmesan cheese if you like, but personally I think it’s perfect as is.
