Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 4 cups Russet potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

Preparation Steps:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a baking dish.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  3. Stir in the flour to create a roux, cooking for 1-2 minutes until it becomes a light golden color.
  4. Gradually whisk in the milk, stirring continuously to avoid lumps.
  5. Continue cooking and stirring until the mixture thickens, usually 5-7 minutes.
  6. Remove the saucepan from heat and add the shredded cheddar and Gruyere or Swiss cheese. Stir until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
  7. Season the cheese sauce with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasonings as needed.
  8. Place a layer of thinly sliced potatoes in the prepared baking dish.
  9. Pour a portion of the cheese sauce over the potatoes, ensuring they are well-coated.
  10. Repeat the layering process until you’ve used all the potatoes and cheese sauce, finishing with a layer of cheese on top.
  11. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 45-50 minutes. Then, remove the foil and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes until the top is golden and the potatoes are tender.
  12. Allow the Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes to cool for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
