What are scalloped potatoes?
Scalloped potatoes are layers of thinly sliced potatoes baked with heavy cream, infused with garlic and herbs. Not to be confused with potatoes au gratin, which has cheese between the layers and often bread crumbs on top.
What’s especially great about this potato recipe, besides the perfect balance of creamy sauce, herbs, and tender potatoes, is you don’t have to pre-cook the sauce, and you don’t need an oven…YEY!
This easy scalloped potato recipe takes 25 minutes to cook using the instant pot. This recipe is vegan and at a whole new level of deliciousness.
There are two important things to know for achieving the best results when making instant pot scalloped potatoes!
You must use Russet potatoes. The reason is, they have the most starch and make the creamiest sauce. Some of us shy away from potatoes because of the carbs. However, potatoes are rich in dietary fiber, vitamin C and potassium. Therefore potatoes are considered a healthy carb.
For best results, the potatoes have to be sliced super thin. The easiest way to do this is by using a food processor or a mandolin. Otherwise, you will end up with a thin milky sauce. They will still taste delicious but not as creamy as they could be.
As the scalloped potatoes rest, the sauce thickens. And, they are even better the next day. I have served them for breakfast with a poached egg over the top. Or for brunch with ham or sausages and a light salad. There are many ways you can serve scalloped potatoes. Enjoy!
