When Thanksgiving comes around, it’s all about turkey, stuffing, carrots and mashed potatoes. But there are occasions I like to change things up a tad. Potatoes, for instance, don’t have to be just mashed with gravy. Scalloped potatoes are just as easy to make.
I found this Scalloped Potatoes recipe from Real Simple and made little adjustments I knew my family and friends would love. The potatoes come out perfectly tender and have light cream infused with thyme coating each slice. Topped with a slightly golden cheddar cheese crust, it’s an ideal side to serve along your roasted turkey.
To speed up the slicing process, use a mandoline. Be careful though not to get carried away as you slice to avoid injury. Some vegetable spiralizer tools also have a part that allows you to create ribbon-like slices too. It would work just as well. No matter how you decide to cut it, I know you’ll like this dish. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
