Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes Potatoes au Gratin



  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh thyme or parsley, for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter or cooking spray.
  2. Prepare the Sauce:
    • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute until fragrant.
    • Stir in the flour and cook for another 1-2 minutes to form a roux.
    • Gradually whisk in the milk and heavy cream, ensuring there are no lumps.
    • Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until it thickens, about 3-5 minutes.
    • Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Assemble the Dish:
    • Arrange half of the sliced potatoes in an even layer in the prepared baking dish.
    • Pour half of the cheese sauce over the potatoes.
    • Repeat with the remaining potatoes and cheese sauce, spreading it evenly over the top.
  4. Add Cheese Topping:
    • Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese and the grated Parmesan cheese evenly over the top of the potatoes.
  5. Bake:
    • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.
    • Remove the foil and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and the top is golden and bubbly.
  6. Garnish and Serve:
    • Let the scalloped potatoes cool for a few minutes before serving.
    • Garnish with fresh thyme or parsley if desired.

Enjoy your cheesy scalloped potatoes!
