Scalloped Potatoes

Amanda Cooks & Styles
Thinly sliced potatoes layered in a creamy sauce with cheddar cheese baked to a golden perfection. I absolutely love this classic potato side dish recipe! To me, it is the ultimate comfort food admitting that I have a true love for potatoes (baked, fried, mashed, you name it!).
