Scalloped Garlic Potatoes

Unlike most scalloped potato recipes, this one does not contain any cheese. It's just a simple, creamy scalloped potato recipe.  Sprinkle a little cheese in if you'd like!


  • 5 medium Russet potatoes
  • salt, to taste
  • 4 large garlic cloves, chopped finely
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • chopped parsley for garnish, if you'd like


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter an 8x8x2-inch baking dish. (photo above shows the recipe doubled in a larger 9x13 pan)
  2. Peel and slice the potatoes (about 1/4-inch thick). Place one layer of potatoes in the baking dish; lightly season with salt and sprinkle with some garlic. Repeat layering with remaining potatoes and garlic. Pour milk evenly over the potatoes. Bake, covered, for 45 minutes.
  3. Remove the cover, drizzle the cream over the potatoes, then return to the oven and bake 45 minutes longer (uncovered).
  4. Serve hot; or if not serving right away, cool potatoes, cover snugly with foil and freeze until needed.  Garnish with parsley, if desired.
TIP: Leftovers are good with breakfast as a side to eggs!

    Made these potatoes as well as the green beans with caramalized shallots for Easter and they were amazing. I also made the lemon truffle cake, so pretty and tasted delicious! Thanks for the great recipes!
