An easy scalloped potato dish that uses no milk, cream, or canned soups!

Scalloped Potatoes | Taste and Tell

I can’t believe it’s already time to start talking Easter dinner. Actually, I’m probably already a little late to the game, because I’ve already seen some Easter recipes popping up. Hopefully you haven’t planned your menu yet, because I’ve got a few recipes for you over the next couple of weeks. And don’t worry if you have already planned, I have a few posts for leftovers, too! And most of these recipes really would be good at anytime, not just for a holiday.

I love Easter dinner. One of the main reasons I love it so much is that it is one of the few times of the year that I get scalloped potatoes. There is just something about ham and scalloped potatoes that goes perfectly together. I’ve actually been sitting on this recipe since January, when my husband got a ham from work, and when I went to cook up a ham dinner one Sunday night, I started searching for a great scalloped potato recipe.

Usually scalloped potatoes are super rich – filled with cheese and bacon and milk or cream or cream of something soups. I was so intrigued when I came across this recipe. No milk? No cream? Not even any cheese????

So I had to try these. But of course, I couldn’t have scalloped potatoes without cheese. I think that’s some sort of crime against scalloped potatoes, isn’t it?? I’ll be honest – I wasn’t expecting to love these. But guess what? They were pretty much awesome. They were perfectly tender and creamy and hit all the notes of your typical high-fat scalloped potatoes, but these are so much better for you than so many recipes out there. Less calories and fat without sacrificing flavor? Count me in!!

How do you eat your potatoes on Easter?

    Scalloped potatoes own 99% of my heart. Don’t tell my husband.

    When my hubs and I were first married I made a lamb roast and scalloped potatoes, I think he fell a little more in love with me after that meal!

    Cheesy creamy potatoes are my weakness! (oh who am I kidding, most food is my weakness). I love that these are a bit less naughty 🙂

    What a unique recipe. My hubby loves scalloped potatoes and ham so I think I may give this recipe a try next time I make it. Thanks!

  11. I whipped up my some of my Easter recipes yesterday but don’t plan to share them until next (so I guess I am really behind compared to everyone else). But I guess that gives me time to whip up these!

  12. These potatoes would go perfect with ham. I am going to bookmark this for the next time I want a potato side dish.

  13. Joanne says:

    I’m SOOO glad you added cheese to these…it just wouldn’t be right otherwise! They look awesome!

  14. ALli says:

    My husband loves scalloped potatoes. Mine always turn out just not right. If these taste as good as your picture looks I am going to be the star on Easter. Going to do a test run. Thanks!

  15. anon says:

    cheese and butter is still milk.

    • Deborah says:

      @anon, I only meant that it doesn’t have a heavy milk or cream sauce. I guess I should have specified that these aren’t vegan or lactose free, only lighter than normal scalloped potatoes.

  16. Julia says:

    I’m just starting to plan my Easter menu, and these look like a great fit!

  17. These look amazing! I’ll definitely be trying these out, love that they’re low fat.

  18. Chels R. says:

    So my mom makes these amazing scalloped potatoes. They are legendary in our family and she is so stingy and won’t give me the recipe at all. My dad is the only one who knows how to make aside from her. I think she’s afraid I’ll blog them if I have them, and she likes to keep things a secret and not share. Kinda of mean right? Well your potatoes look almost identical to hers, so I will be making these!

  19. Ohhh I love scalloped potatoes! It’s been ages since I’ve made them! These look great!

  20. Samantha says:

    Do you think these would freeze well?

  21. Lisa Evanoff says:

    I made these tonight, and they were delicious!
