Easy Garlic Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

When it comes to getting everyone together for holidays like Christmas and Easter by the time everyone around the table we usually have at least 20 people to feed.  My Mom has always had the policy “the more the merrier”, which is wonderful because that means that we get to see a lot of our family at one time.  It means not only is my immediate family there, but also my in-laws, cousins and Aunts & Uncles.  One quality visit instead of rushing from place to place trying to see everyone.  However hosting such a large group does come with some logistical challenges and requires that everyone pitch in.  If it is my Mom hosting she handles the mains (usually a delicious roast turkey and ham) but asks that other family members each bring a dish for dinner or dessert, because there is just not enough oven space for her to cook it all.  These easy Garlic Scalloped Potatoes would be a perfect recipe to whip up ahead of time and take to our family dinner.

I have always found scalloped potatoes a little challenging, because I worry about adding too much milk and having them be soggy, or not enough and then they don’t take very good.  For this recipe of Garlic Scalloped Potatoes Philadelphia Cooking Cream helps take the guess work out of the recipe and adds a yummy savoury flavour to compliment any meal.  I adapted the Garlic Scalloped Potatoes from Kraft What’s Cooking and they turned out great, here is what you need to make them yourself:

1 tub (270g) Philadelphia Herb & Garlic Cooking Cream

1 cup Milk

1/8 tsp Pepper

1/2 Onion, thinly sliced

3lbs Potatoes (about 6 large potatoes), peeled and thinly sliced

1/2 cup Parmesan Shredded Cheese

This would be a great dish to make ahead of time and take to a pot luck as it travels and reheats well.  The herbs and garlic flavours give a nice boost to plain scalloped potatoes and would make a tasty side dish for ham, turkey or a roast.  If you need more Easter Recipe inspiration look no further – main dishes, side sides and mouth watering desserts they have it all.  Why not finish of a great family dinner with Oreo Easter Eggs or Mini Easter Cheesecakes
