Potatoes remain a satisfying staple in many people’s meals, and scalloping this popular veggie is a decadent and delicious way to serve it. If you've never sliced potatoes scallop-style or whisked hot cream, you may think that this dish is best left to master chefs. However, scalloped potatoes actually require just a handful of ingredients and is quite very simple to make.


1. Pick Your Potatoes

Selecting the right type of potato will ensure your scallops have the perfect creamy texture. Potatoes with a naturally buttery flavor work best with this dish. Yukon Gold potatoes hold their shape well, which keeps them from leaking starch into your sauce and Russet potatoes have a high starch content and will help thicken your sauce.
