Bomb Scalloped Potatoes

I am surprised that this wasn’t the first thing I posted on my blog because…potatoes. No, not just potatoes. Cheesy, creamy, savory potatoes baked until golden, melting in your mouth while you think, “Yes. This is living my best life.” I list the original recipe below, but I also tried a healthier option that swaps out the sour cream and regular milk for plain Greek yogurt and coconut milk. I left the cheese though because I can’t part ways with that. I am just not ready. I will say that although the OG recipe is perfect as is, the healthier version is pretty killer too.

Grease a baking dish and layer in half of the sliced potatoes.

Mix together the Greek yogurt or sour cream, coconut milk or regular milk and salt and pepper. Pour half of this mixture onto the potatoes.

Sprinkle on as much cheese as you desire. Go crazy.

Layer in the remaining potatoes, pour on the rest of the sauce and top with more cheese.

I was worried that the Greek yogurt and coconut milk combo would throw off the taste a bit but I couldn’t even tell a difference. They made the potatoes just as creamy as the sour cream and regular milk do. The potatoes are tender and the end flavor is a cheese potato explosion. Endorphins will be coursing.
