Hey…happy Monday:) Hope you had a great weekend!

Potatoes and cheese…with cream…I mean how can you go wrong? You can’t go wrong. It is comfort food at it’s best. This recipe pairs perfect with anything—chicken, beef, pork…or just hunker down on your couch and eat it alone—I’m not going to judge. In college, on a rainy Sunday…my housemate would make a big batch of her famous mashed potatoes and we would watch Disney movies all day—no joke. Talk about comfort….and the quickest way to cure a hangover too….just sayin. Anywho, these scalloped potatoes come together really quick with minimal effort and it is why I love them so…Make some tonight…your people will love you that much more:)

If you have a mandolin slicer….use it to get your potatoes super thin…and it will bake that much quicker. You can just slice with a knife…and bake a bit longer too. The timing on the recipe below is assuming you are slicing with a knife:)
