Side Dish Recipe: Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Everyone has their comfort foods, and scalloped potatoes are definitely one of mine. I love them because they are relatively easy to make, they’re filling and delicious, and there are so many ways to make them. Since they are something my kids will eat, I take advantage of the opportunity to sneak in a little extra nutrition with a cauliflower puree, and I use Dairy Oh! milk so that they are getting added DHA as well!

    Cauliflower puree!? I would never have guessed that for an ingredient! I’m going to give these a try for sure. Thanks for sharing :-)

    This looks like such an easy dish to make. Yes, I too love a potato! Last Easter I hosted a family dinner. I gave away the left over scalloped potatoes and ham. The next morning my nephew asked if any of the leftover potatoes were brought home…he was a happy boy!

    I love potatoes… I mean really LOVE potatoes. I’ll give these a try. I’m very curious about the pureed cauliflower. :)

    So delicious. I love that you snuck in a little cauliflower. I’ve been blending in a little turnip with my mashed potatoes myself.
