Scalloped Potatoes 10 Ways

Originally a British import, scalloped potatoes are now an established North American favorite. Creamy and satisfying, this quintessential comfort food features thin-sliced potatoes layered in a casserole dish, seasoned with onions and cream, and baked until bubbly on top. The result is a rich, golden-brown side with a pleasingly crusty top—perfect in the winter and holiday season.
