Scallop Potatoes

I like to use a large pie plate to bake and serve the scallop potatoes. It is very pleasing to the eye. Most people eat with their eyes before their mouths. This is easy to prepare with most ingredients that cooks have in their pantry. Enjoy the crunch on top and indulge with the creamy filling inside.

  • 4 large potatoes peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
  • 4-6 ounces unsalted butter You may need more
  • 1/2 + cup grated Parmesan cheese You may need more
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2+ cup Whole milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a large glass pie dish or other kind of baking dish with a little butter to coat bottom of pan.
  3. Layer sliced potatoes.
  4. Cut butter into small pieces. Dot on potatoes.
  5. Sprinkle on grated cheese and salt and pepper.
  6. Repeat layers.
  7. Pour milk into a cup with a spout. Pour around the sides of the dish until it reaches about 1/3 up the sides.
