Best Scalloped Potatoes Recipe
We decided to make this creamy scalloped potatoes recipe more 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 versions are delicious and pretty, but they will have slightly different cooking 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)

How to Make Scalloped Potatoes Creamy
The secret to these CREAMY scalloped potatoes is the Boursin Cheese. If you haven’t used boursin before, don’t be scared! It’s just a creamy cheese with herbs, similar to cream cheese in consistency. It can be found at any grocery store, usually in the specialty cheese section, and 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.
I also have a Homemade Boursin Cheese recipe that is super easy and delicious!
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. Theses creamy scalloped potatoes are too good not to make more often!
