Easy Potato Casserole Recipe

Scalloped or Au Gratin Potatoes are my favorite thing to order at a fancy steakhouse. I actually like the potatoes more than the steaks! These Steakhouse Scalloped Potatoes are the BEST. Thinly sliced potatoes, Gruyere cheese, parmesan cheese, garlic, and heavy cream. They are easy to make and taste AH-MAZ-ING! I could skip the steak and make a meal out of just these cheesy potatoes. You MUST add them to your list to make. I dare say they are better than any of the fancy steakhouses potatoes!

How to Make Steakhouse Scalloped Potatoes

These potatoes look and sound fancy but they are really easy to make with only 5 ingredients. Start with slicing some potatoes very thin. I use a hand-held mandoline slicer to slice the potatoes. It is great! It only takes a minute, and you have evenly sliced potatoes that are nice and thin. 

Once the potatoes are sliced, place them in a baking dish. Combine heavy cream, garlic, salt, and pepper. Pour over the potatoes. Top with some cheese and bake. You are going to stir the potatoes every 10 minutes while they are baking. It helps the potatoes cook and get nice and creamy.

  • I used Yukon Gold Potatoes. You can use any potato that you prefer.
  • I used Gruyere and parmesan cheese. Feel free to substitute swiss cheese for the Gruyere. Gruyere can be expensive, but it is worth a splurge if you can afford it.
  • Can Scalloped Potatoes be made in advance? Yes! You can slice the potatoes and pour the heavy cream over them and refrigerate them overnight. You may need to add a few minutes to the baking time if baking straight from the refrigerator.
  • Can Scalloped Potatoes be frozen? Yes! Bake the potatoes up until the final 15 minutes and remove them from the oven. Let the casserole dish cool completely. Cover and freeze. To reheat, simply thaw and finish the cooking until the potatoes are tender again.
  • This makes a lot of potatoes. Feel free to cut the recipe in half. The baking time would stay the same.
  • Are Scalloped Potatoes gluten-free? Yes! These potatoes are gluten-free.

What to Serve with Scalloped Potatoes

These potatoes are on repeat at our house. We’ve made them several times and LOVE them. They are perfect with our Steakhouse Filets and much cheaper than eating out at a steakhouse. These potatoes are also great with chicken, pork, burgers, chicken fingers, and casseroles. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with these cheesy potatoes:
