Potatoes Daphinois ~ Scalloped Potatoes




Honestly, do Scalloped Potatoes need any explanation?!



I loved when my mother would serve them with dinner ~ they have always been one of my favorite ways of enjoying potatoes.



We don't have them very often these days.
And now instead of baking them in a large baking dish, I make individual servings...
So much better for portion control.



Here they are, ready for the oven.





And after baking, hot, bubbling and browned.
Another advantage of individual serving dishes; they will be on the table much sooner. ...:)




I served them along with baked Chicken Breasts wrapped in Prosciutto & Sage on a bed of wilted baby spinach.

A delicious dinner on a wet, stormy evening.



Happy Foodie Friday for those who are participating.

  14. Mari, have I told you how much I covet both your cooking & photography skills? Lord, Woman.....you make my mouth water every time I open a single post of yours. I want to run right out to the grocery store & try to duplicate whatever it is you're serving.
    BEAUTIFULLY done....both the food & the pictures. :-)

  21. Oh, Mari, these look so creamy good! Scalloped potatoes are such a silky luxury, one I do not think to make too often. I shall have to make these again. Your photo is gorgeous and so tempting. I want to stab a fork at your gorgeous potatoes.

  23. Hi Mari,

    Ohh so that's how you portion control scalloped potatoes lol. If I eat three little dishes of them is this still portion control?

    It should be. They look wonderful.

  25. I am with you...do scalloped potatoes need an explanation? No! Your pictures say it all and I am ready to dig in!

  26. My mother always made these wonderful potatoes when she baked a ham. They are a favorite here. And individual servings are especially nice.

  27. What to say that hasn't been said already? What compliment hasn't been given? Potatoes, creaminess, golden brown topping... I'm not sure I could stop at one individual serving.

  28. You know this is one of my weaknesses;-)) And I have no willpower! Love the individual servings, but how do I go back into the main dish and take "just one more bite?"

    Beautiful pics!

    Thanks...Diane

  32. This is so timely. I just finished The Lost Art of Gratitude by A.M. Smith, an Isabel Dalhousie novel. Potatoes Dauphinois play quite a prominent role in the novel. I wasn't quite sure what they were; now I know. A delightful read and a delightful sounding dish.
