These scalloped Parmesan potatoes are much lighter and healthier than traditional recipes! This post is sponsored by alli®. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
The scalloped potato recipe I usually use calls for 1 1/2 cups of cheese. You make a cheesy sauce and then pour it over the potatoes so that the potatoes are enveloped in cheese. Sounds great, right? It is if you have self-control. And if you don’t eat a fourth of the sauce before you even pour it over the potatoes because it’s just so good. So I save that recipe for special occasions like Easter and Christmas or pretty much whenever we have ham.
I was happy to come across this healthier alternative. There’s just a small amount of cheese and because you pour the milk and seasoning mixture over the potatoes, all the cheese stays on top and forms a light cheesy crust.
To make the these scalloped potatoes, all you do is wash the potatoes and cut them about 1/8” thick. I love using my mandolin for this!
Then you place them in a greased dish. Mine was about 9”x13” but anything with about the same area will work. You don’t need to fuss with trying to make a perfectly even level. The potatoes cook down in the oven.
Mix together all the remaining ingredients and pour over the potatoes.
Bake for 50-60 minutes. That’s it! If the topping gets too dark for your liking, cover the potatoes with some foil.
