How to make Sheet Pan Scalloped Potatoes 

  • Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and heat oven to 450°F.
  • Heat a large skillet, over medium-low heat, and add the oil and butter. When the oil is hot and butter has melted, add the diced onion. Cook, stirring often, until the onion has softened and is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • While the onions cook, scrub, dry and cut the potatoes into 1/8-inch slices. Pat the slices dry with paper towels and lay them (shingle-stylin the prepared baking sheet. The rows of potatoes should barely touch and the potatoes should fill the pan.
  • Season the potatoes with black pepper, and sprinkle them with half of the Gruyere and half of the Parmesan.
  • When the onions are ready, raise the heat to medium and add the cream, Dijon and herbs, stirring continuously. Heat just to a simmer and carefully pour the cream/onion mixture over the potatoes. Tilt the sheet pan slightly in all directions to spread the cream/onion mixture to the edges and corners of the pan. Season with additional freshly ground black pepper.
  • Top with the remaining cheeses; Gruyere first and Parmesan on the very top.
  • Cover the potatoes with foil that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Be sure to place the foil sprayed-side down.
  • Bake 15 minutes at 450°F and remove the foil.
  • Reduce the temperature to 375°F and continue baking 40-45 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked through, the edges are crispy, the middle is bubbly and the top is golden brown.
  • Transfer the potatoes from the oven and let cool 15 minutes before serving.
  • Enjoy!

Make ahead potato side dish

Not only are these great for feeding several people (this recipe makes 10 servings!), but if you are being organized, you can also make the dish ahead of time. Simply prepare the dish up to the point of baking it, cover it and keep it in the fridge for 2 to 3 days before cooking it through to serve. You can also freeze the scalloped potatoes at this point and they will keep for a month – you can cook them right from frozen too!
