Hello autumn! When the cool, crisp air arrives, so do all the festive fall gatherings (think tailgates, potlucks + cozy dinners at home) and my hankering for all of the robust and savory comfort foods. This season, I’ve taken a tried and true family favorite and elevated it to a whole new level with Tillamook Farmstyle Cut Sharp Yellow Cheddar Shredded Cheese. I am SO loving this flavorful, bold shredded cheese melted into my Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes.
These potatoes are golden, cheesy + so simple to make. It’s no secret scalloped potatoes are a crowd-pleaser as they are the perfect side dish for entertaining or the ultimate cozy night in!
These rich, sharp cheddar scalloped potatoes are a luscious blend of cozy fall flavors. I sauté scallions in butter with fresh thyme and garlic to create a buttery, herby flavor. I then whisk in the cream, evaporated milk and eggs to make the silkiest sauce that will bake to bubbly perfection. Finally, I add a VERY generous layer of Tillamook Farmstyle Cut Sharp Yellow Cheddar Shredded Cheese and in the oven it goes.
Layered with a creamy, buttery filling, the cooked yellow potatoes became slightly chewy when baked. Once you see the sauce bubbling in the oven, this heavenly dish is ready to spoon onto plates. Let’s be honest, the potatoes are really just a delivery device for the bold and savory cheese. How do I get those crunchy edges and smooth, melty finish? Tillamook Farmstyle Cut Shredded Cheese!
