garlic cream scalloped potatoes

A most welcome recipe “revision” for our blog! Paleo & Whole30 GARLIC CREAM SCALLOPED POTATOES are here!

A few years back we came up with a rendition of the infamous “funeral potatoes” so often made and shared at, well….funeral luncheons. A very real thing here in Utah, but not necessarily as well known outside of our state.

The best thing about this recipe? Well, the best thing is that it’s scalloped potatoes, haha! Also, you make this dish using leftover baked potatoes. Brilliant right! Since those spuds are already cooked, the baking process is simply to warm up that creamy sauce so bubbly delicious!

The garlicky sauce mingled with those soft tates is so remarkable! If you do tolerate a bit of parmesan cheese on occasion, go for it! Layer that along with the sauce, zero judgement! Another fun add in would be some chopped ham right? Just layer some finely diced ham right along with the potatoes, winner idea!

We are using the new SUPER GARLIC blend from Balanced Bites here. The freshest (and also organic) blend of garlic and herbs that truly take this dish over the top. You can use garlic powder, but taste the sauce before putting the dish together in case you need more garlic flavor.

We hope this graces your dinner table on many occasions, it’s truly such a wonderful side dish and warms up like a dream. That is, if you even have any leftovers!
