Choose firm, smooth eggplants for best results when making this incredible dish. We bake rather than fry ours for less mess and less fat.

Creamy Scalloped Potatoes

Our favorite scalloped potatoes recipe is a must-make dish for holiday meals and other celebrations. We simmer thinly sliced Yukon gold potatoes with milk and cream.

Not only is this rich potato side dish a crowd pleaser, it's a winner for the cook as it can be assembled ahead of time and baked when you're ready to eat.
