Welcome to my ALL TIME FAVORITE POTATO RECIPE! It’s an updated version of our family favorite, Boursin Potatoes Gratin, and I know you’re going to just love it. I recruited Mom to help me add some more creamy, add some more garlic, and just take the overall recipe up a notch, and we are so happy with the results. I guarantee these CHEESY GARLIC HERB SCALLOPED POTATOES will be on our holiday tables every year and I hope you love it as much as we do! It just simply doesn’t get any better than this, folks! Thanksgiving isn’t going to know what hit it!

We decided to make this version like hasselback potatoes, upright with the creamy goodness poured over (and each piece of potato individually dipped because MORE CHEESE PLEASE). We thought it looked so beautiful for Thanksgiving and Christmas. But you could also make them layered/stacked, like traditional scalloped potatoes. Both are delicious and pretty, just have a bit different cook times. If you choose to make them layered, you can cook them about 30 minutes less than this Hasselback version. Totally up to you and your aesthetic! You can’t go wrong. (Details on cooking differences are in the recipe card below)

If you haven’t used boursin before, don’t be scared! It’s just a herbed creamy cheese, similar to cream cheese in consistency. It can be found at any grocery store, usually in the specialty cheese section. It’s typically in a tube or tub. It is SO GOOD and you’re sure to be addicted in no time. I use it in my Skillet Basil Cream Chicken recipe too and people go crazy for it.

These CHEESY GARLIC HERB SCALLOPED POTATOES are a must make for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, or any day in between. I always wonder why I think of these all year and then only make them on holidays. That’s about to change. They’re too good not to make often! Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 5 lbs Yukon Gold Potatoes (scrubbed and partially cooked in the microwave 4-6 minutes (this will shorten the cooking time in the oven).
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 (5.6 oz. ea.) packages Boursin Cheese, garlic & herb
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Grated Parmesan for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F.
  2. Spray an 8 x 11 inch casserole dish with non-stick spray and dot the bottom with butter. Place it in the oven until butter melts then remove the pan from the oven.
  3. In a medium saucepan, heat heavy cream, Boursin cheese, salt and pepper over medium-low heat just until the cheese melts and stir until mixture is smooth. Set mixture aside until ready to use.
  4. Slice the partially cooked potatoes with a mandolin (if available) into 3/16” slices. Place the sliced potatoes in a large bowl and pour the cheese/cream mixture over all them.
  5. (This next step is messy, but I don’t know any other way to do it.)
  6. Pick up several potato slices and place them in the casserole dish. Organize the slices into a small stack then place them vertically along the side of the dish. Repeat with all the potato slices, placing them where needed. The potatoes should be tightly packed.
  7. Pour the excess cheese/cream mixture over the potatoes until the mixture comes up almost to the top.
  8. Cover the dish with foil and place it on a foil-lined baking sheet pan. Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake 30 minutes. Remove the foil covering from the dish and bake another 30 minutes then sprinkle grated Parmesan over the potatoes. Bake 15-30 more minutes until the top is golden brown, the middle is bubbly and potatoes are cooked through. Total cook time is 75-90 minutes.
  9. Remove potatoes from the oven, all to rest 5-10 minutes before serving.
  10. Enjoy!
  11. **We have made these potatoes both the “Hasselback” way and the traditional way (layering). Both variations are delicious. The potatoes look prettier made the Hasselback way. The traditional way is less messy, easier and, in my opinion, creamier.
  12. If you want to make them the traditional way, cook them in a 9x13 inch casserole dish, use 3 lbs. of potatoes and 1 package of Boursin cheese. Layer half the potatoes then half the cheese/cream mixture. Repeat. Follow the same cooking instructions. The potatoes will probably cook more quickly – 45-70 minutes instead of 90. Cook at 350 degrees F.

Ivy
Hi! This looks so good! Can I make this ahead of time like the night before then serve it the next day? Thank you for sharing your recipies.
    Becky Hardin
    You could prepare it before but I would wait to cook it. You can have it ready and then cook when its time. Hope you love it!!
Edgar
It's so pleasant! I love your blogging! Excellent!
sherry klusman
This is a beautiful presentation. Question....since all the potatoes aren't covered with a sauce do the upper portions of potato dry out while baking?
    Becky Hardin
    We dipped each piece and that helped, but yes the tops are crispier/drier than the bottom. We put instructions in the recipe card for a typical scalloped presentation that might be more to your liking. Either way I hope you love them! Happy Thanksgiving!
Karen
Do you think I could prepare this ahead of time? And freeze? Baking it on Christmas Day?
Bill
How many potatoes do you microwave at a time. Looks great and I want to try it.
    Becky Hardin
    Whatever will fit on a plate in your microwave at a time will be fine. Enjoy!
      Bill
      Sorry to bother, can these be made a day ahead and brought to room temp and then cooked?
        Becky Hardin
        I haven't made them that way but it should be fine. Hope you have a great holiday!
Joel
If I make them the tradidional way with one package of cheese, I would still use 2 cups of heavy cream, correct?
