Country-Style Scalloped Potatoes

Delicious creamy Country-Style Scalloped Potatoes are the perfect menu item this time of year. Made with Russet potatoes, onions, heavy cream, half and half cream, garlic, and a simple seasoning of nutmeg, kosher salt, and freshly ground pepper, all baked to perfection in a warm cozy oven.

It’s that lovely time of year again, the children are off to school to learn, and Summer is ending. It’s time to get out our favorite Classic Casserole Recipes like my Country-Style Scalloped Potatoes and turn on the oven again.  Labor Day is upon us this Monday, and we are about to wrap up all those warm-weather dishes we have made all season. I don’t mind one bit, and I am ready to have a break from the Summer heat here in Florida.

I miss the sound of the wind rushing through the beautiful leaves that are changing colors in October.  I know it’s only the end of August, but I am in a rush to start thinking of my favorite season and all the beautiful traditions it brings. You don’t mind, do you? 

The smell of the air even changes in Ohio after the summer, almost renewing your senses. The wind suddenly smells clean and fresh. I have always indeed been a Fall Girl. I am putting on my favorite sweaters, scarves, and leather boots. I love the seasonal foods and that aroma of freshly baked casseroles that waft through my house.

I am feeling a little homesick today, knowing that Fall weather is right around the corner. After all, it’s going to be September soon, and us Fall Girls like to be ready. With that in mind today, I have decided to make one of my favorites Country-Style Scalloped Potatoes. It’s warm and comforting with thinly sliced potatoes, onions, heavy cream, half and half, fresh thyme, and a hint of nutmeg.

 

 

Scalloped Potatoes have always been a favorite of mine over the years. I mean, they go with almost anything. It’s also such a versatile dish by changing a few minor ingredients. I use a straightforward method for mine that won’t keep you in the kitchen all day. Who wants to spend all day in there anyway?

My recipe does not use cheeses. It’s a simple Country Style version that will amaze you with the creamy, pure taste packed with a delicious flavor that will keep your family coming back for more this upcoming Fall.
