Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

The Easiest Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes Recipe you will make from scratch

These cheesy scalloped potatoes have long been a family favorite. If you don’t want to make a large batch, you can cut the recipe in half. However, when I don’t need a large amount, I love turning the second half into cheesy potato soup. Two meals in one!




  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Grease 4 quart deep baking dish with butter.
  3. Thinly slice potatoes and onion.
  4. Layer 1/3 potatoes and 1/3 onion.
  5. Lightly sprinkle a little salt and pepper over top.
  6. Spread 1/3 bag cheese across top.
  7. Repeat layers until all ingredients are used, ending with cheese.
  8. Cover with glass lid or foil, tenting foil so it doesn’t touch the cheese.
  9. Bake 1 hour, or until potatoes are soft.


  1. If using a 9 x 13 pan, split ingredients into 1/2 instead of 1/3. If using a small dish with deeper sides, such as a 6 inch deep dish, split ingredients into 1/4’s.
  2. I prefer to use red potatoes so I can skip peeling them. Other potatoes tend to have tougher skins or a metal type taste.
  3. Smaller batches will take 40-45 minutes to cook.
