A family favorite for all kinds of celebratory meals, scalloped potatoes are simple to make. All you need to do is cook potato slices in milk, layer them in a casserole dish, top them with milk and cream, and bake. Our version omits the onions that some recipes include and adds Gruyère. The cheese melts beautifully, giving a delicious, crispy topping to the soft, creamy potatoes.
