Are you looking for a holiday side dish that is a little different, yet very easy?
These scalloped potatoes might be just what you are looking for.
These potatoes are what I will be making this year for Christmas dinner to serve with ham. These would go perfect with ham, roast, and just about any other holiday meal.
I like these scalloped potatoes because they are a little different than your average scalloped potato. What makes these potatoes unique is the mustard and the swiss cheese that is in them.
My husband does not usually like scalloped potatoes, but he loves these because the addition of the mustard gives them so much flavor.
These potatoes also contain swiss cheese which is also a little different than your basic scalloped potatoes. I am the one that is not usually a fan of swiss cheese, but in these potatoes, the swiss cheese gives it an extra depth of flavor without being overpowering and I loved them.
Mustard Scalloped Potatoes
Mustard scalloped potatoes take a basic scallopped potato recipe and gives it a twist.
- 1/3 cup finely chopped onions
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup dijon mustard
- 1 cup swiss cheese shredded
- 7 or 8 medium potatoes, thinly sliced
- Cook onions in oil until tender.
- In a bowl combine the butter, cream, milk, mustard, and cooked onions.
- In a greased baking dish ( about 9x13) layer 1/3 of the potatoes, 1/3 of the sauce, and 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat layers 2 more times.
- Cover with foil and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Then uncover and bake 40 minutes more or until tender.
- Serve and enjoy.

I am new to your blog and WOW, I have found so many wonderful ideas.The breakfast roll is next on my list
@pam, Thank you! I am so glad that you found my site and are enjoying my recipes.
I’m always confused on what type of potato is best to use for scalloped potatoes. Should I use baking potatoes or boiling potatoes.
Baking potatoes are high in starch and Boiling potatoes are low in starch. What do you recommend? Thank you.
@Richard, I have used both, but I usually prefer to use a non baking potato, because I think they hold up better in a dish like this. I have found that baking potatoes turn mushy in things like scalloped potatoes. But, you gave me an idea and I will try to do a post on the types of potatoes in January and what types I like to use for what.
