Tips and Tidbits About These Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Choose the right potato! I like to use a buttery, waxy potato like Yukon Golds. I have used all types of potatoes with good success but the Yukon Golds release just the right amount of starch that is the essence of a creamy sauce.

They will also hold their shape for great texture.

Like I said other potatoes will work but sometimes they will leak to much starch and yield less than stellar results!
