There are plenty of ways to make potatoes, but we’re confident scalloped potatoes is one of the best. And this recipe using two of our favorite types of cheeses - Gorgonzola andChèvre - and our French Garden Blend Sea Salt is sure to please!
Of all our different sea salts, French Garden Blend Sea Salt seemed like the ideal choice for this recipe. A blend of garlic, bell peppers, and onion makes this salt is one of our most popular and its herby flavor enhances any dish its added to, especially potatoes. Also consider using this salt as a rub for steak or chicken.
The sauce, made from equal parts whole milk and heavy cream, give the potatoes a creamy texture. Chèvre, a more mild, creamy cheese, and Gorgonzola, a semi-soft, robust cheese, balance one another out - creating a harmonious blend for a cheese lover!
While this recipe requires some patience - the potatoes take approximately an hour and a half to bake - it’s certainly well worth the wait. The time allows the potatoes to become tender and absorb the cheesy cream sauce. Turn on the broiler in the last few minutes of baking to give the potatoes a crispy finish. Despite the lengthier cook time, the rest of the preparation is relatively quick and simple. These scalloped potatoes can serve as the side to a number of dishes, whether you’re grilling up a juicy steak or roasting a chicken.
