Scalloped potatoes are the perfect comfort food and  side dish.  Sliced potatoes combined with cream of mushroom soup are then layered with cheese and dotted with butter.  Then bake in the oven or your slow cooker for a filling and delicious compliment to any meal especially an Easter ham!

Scalloped Potatoes


Most people serve some kind of potatoes for Thanksgiving.  In our house, we always have mashed potatoes, my mom’s  broccoli casserole, and pumpkin cheesecake with our turkey.  But this year I’m thinking about mixing things up and serving scalloped potatoes.  This is the one recipe my dad requests I make most often, so I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t mind!

The ingredients for this dish are super simple: potatoes, soup, cheese and butter.  I use homemade cream of mushroom soup, but the can version works, too.   Feel free to mix up the cheese if you prefer something other than cheddar, too.  I don’t peel my potatoes, either, but feel free to do so if you prefer them peeled.

I have made these scalloped potatoes in both the oven and the slow cooker.  If you make them in your slow cooker,  just layer as directed, but leave the top layer of cheese off until the last 30 minutes or so. Cook for 4-5 hours on high.

Scalloped Potatoes for the Oven or the Slow Cooker
  1. In a large bowl mix together potatoes and soup until the potatoes are well coated.
  2. Put half the potato mixture in a 9 x 13 dish or the crock of a slow cooker.
  3. Dot potatoes with half the butter and then layer half the cheese on top of the potatoes.
  4. Layer the remainder of the potato mixture on top of the cheese. Dot with the rest of the butter.
  5. If you are baking in an oven, put the remainder of the cheese on top of the dish. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes or until potatoes are tender and cheese is golden brown.
  6. If cooking in a slow cooker, cook on high for 4-5 hours. Put the remaining cheese on top of the dish and keep cooking until cheese is melted and bubbly, about 30 minutes.
