Electric Skillet Scalloped Potatoes

Potatoes, onions, and cheese – the holy trinity of deliciousness, if you ask me. Scalloped potatoes is one of my most favorite dishes, as it can easily be a side dish or a main entrée if you add veggies, ham or sausage to it. The cheesy sauce that forms in the pan holds those perfectly sliced potatoes and onions together for the perfect bite. YUM.

Traditionally, scalloped potatoes are baked in the oven for about an hour or so until the potatoes have cooked through. But, if you don't want to wait a whole hour for that cheesy potato goodness, you might want to try electric skillet scalloped potatoes! Not only does it take a shorter amount of time, but the electric frying pan saves you from having to heat up your oven if you don't feel like it and keeps your stovetop free and clear for any other dishes you might be cooking.

With just a few simple ingredients and a few minutes of prep, you can have a delicious and filling dish to warm you up. For evenly sliced potatoes, try using a mandolin and adjust the thickness setting to the highest one so your potatoes don't fall apart while cooking. Also, be sure to use the hand grip tool so you don't hurt yourself!

If you're not too concerned about calories, you can swap the water out for milk, half-and-half, or cream. It makes the sauce a bit thicker and creamier, which has never been a complaint in my house. You can even try swapping the parsley out for dill, which goes great with potatoes.

Your family will love smelling the onions and potatoes cooking, and I'm sure will be waiting in anticipation for your skillet potatoes to be done. Let us know how you liked this dish and if you added any twists of your own to make it unique!
