This scalloped potatoes recipe is a traditional recipe that can be prepped the night before serving. Creamy with a cheesy topping, scalloped potatoes can easily play side dish to almost any main course. Serve scalloped potatoes with your favorite meat and watch your family fall in love.
Fragrant with cinnamon and enriched with a cream-cheese glaze, these morning buns make an unforgettable breakfast. Mashed potato is the secret behind their light texture, while bread flour provides structure and chew. It might be tempting to enjoy the rolls straight out of the oven, but be sure to let them rest at least 20 minutes before serving--this completes the cooking process and yields tender and airy, not gummy, buns.
Pave, the French word for "paving stones," is a term chef Thomas Keller uses to describe any such rectangular or square food preparation. Try his recipe -- a slightly more refined version of scalloped potatoes -- for an unforgettable holiday side dish. Excerpted from "Ad Hoc at Home," by Thomas Keller (Artisan Books. (c)2009.
