Scalloped Potatoes Recipe @pinch

These creamy, cheesy au gratin potatoes cook to perfection. The sauce is thick, rich, and filled with cheese. Topping with a little more cheese takes this decadent side dish over the top. This recipe makes a smaller batch of potatoes, which is perfect if you're not serving a crowd. The recipe can easily be doubled for larger gatherings. I made this for the first time tonight, and my family devoured it!
