What are the best potatoes to use?
I like to use starchy potatoes for this recipe, yellow, Yukon Gold and Russet all work well. It’s best to stay away from waxy potatoes like reds or fingerlings.
Can you make it ahead of time?
This is a great option if you are looking for a make ahead side dish. After the potatoes and cream have been transferred to the baking dish, let them cool completely. Cover with foil and refrigerate up to 24 hours.
When ready to cook, bake (covered) about 30 minutes or until heated through. Add the topping and continue baking (uncovered) 15-20 minutes or until hot, bubbly and golden.
What do you serve them with?
These parmesan creamed potatoes are great with roasted meats, fish, and of course roast turkey! Serve them up with your favorite veggies sides for a real feast. Try serving them with any of these mains:

- Light or heavy cream are the best choices for this recipe. Milk or Half and Half have a tendency to “break”.
- Cut the potatoes into similar sized pieces so that they cook evenly.
- Leftovers will keep well in the fridge for 3 to 4 days and can be reheated, covered, in the oven at 350F until warmed through.

I made this for a cookout to go with pulled pork and brisket….it was a hit! So delicious…will definitely make again!
So glad you enjoyed it, Lisa!
Is it 1/2 cup Parmesan or 1 ounce Parmesan? It’s printed on my screen as 1/2 cup 1 ounce parmesan
1/2 a cup! Sorry about the error!
Not exactly a 5-minute fix. Only 2 cups heavy cream, so I used half and half. I took it slow heating it up, so it didn’t break. 6 tablespoons of butter and 3.5 cups of heavy cream, you better not be lactose intolerant. I’d might make it again, but the time taken is worth it. I see why you’d make it ahead.
Thanks for stopping by, Mike!
This was one of the best dishes at our thanksgiving! So easy yet so flavorful. Will definitely make again.
Thanks for sharing :)
I made this tonight and it was delicious. Mine was runnier than your pictures but I don’t think I baked it in long enough. I baked it about 25 minutes. I also cut the potatoes in smaller pieces about 1/2″ instead of 1″. I mashed my potatoes a little on my plate and it took away some of the runny texture. Any suggestions? I might leave out the last 1/2 cup of cream the next time.
Sorry, I didn’t take a picture of it.
I think using less cream would help! I’m glad that you enjoyed it still!
