I have a quick, easy, and frugal recipe for creamy scalloped potatoes.
Potatoes are a necessary part of any frugal family’s meal plan because they are filling, inexpensive, and very versatile. I make them countless ways, and some are liked more than others. I like to make dishes that I can make in the morning and then just heat up during the dinner rush. It is always such a busy time of day, partly because the things that didn’t get done when they were supposed to just keep getting pushed to later and later in the day.

I prefer to prepare as much of the evening meal as I can early in the day, often while I am making either breakfast or lunch. It just seems easier to me when I’m already in the kitchen anyway just to multitask.
With a large family, I would be lost without my food processor for things like this. Mine has a slicing attachment that slices all these potatoes in no time. It is also nice because all the potatoes are uniformly sliced.
This is a workhorse, and it’s been a part of my kitchen for a looooong time.
Last night I created a new recipe for scalloped potatoes that were a hit. This recipe would feed about 6 people, so if that is too large for you just scale it back a bit.
For these scalloped potatoes you will need:
- 8-10 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced (hello food processor!)
- 1 can of cream of chicken soup
- 1 can of cheese soup
- 2 T. dried onions
- 1/2 cup sour cream
Slice potatoes. Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl to combine. Pour in casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, covered, depending on when the potatoes are tender to the way you like them. I will warn you that the sauce has a tendency to bubble out of the dish and drip down when I make them. I always throw a drip pan underneath just in case.
These creamy, perhaps dreamy, scalloped potatoes are sure to be a hit in your family just as they are in mine!
