Recipe Notes and Variations:

  • Make a Smaller or Larger Casserole: This recipe is pretty simple to scale, for every pound of potatoes, use about 1 cup of cream of mushroom soup. 
  • Cheese: We used cheddar cheese, Swiss cheese, smoked gouda or gruyere are also great choices. Use your favorite or a combination. 
  • Storage: Cover casserole with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and store in the refrigerator up to 4 days. 
  • Reheat: Reheat in a foil covered casserole in an oven safe dish at 350° for about 20 minutes. Potatoes can also be heated in a skillet, add a splash of milk if needed. Stir until heated through.
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup: We used our homemade cream of mushroom soup. Canned cream of mushroom soup can be used. Mix can soup with a can of milk before pouring over the potatoes. If you aren’t a mushroom fan, cream of chicken or cream of celery soup will work too.

  1. Hi. In your Notes section before the actual recipe for Scalloped Potatoes, you mention adding milk to mushroom soup, which makes sense to me, but; nowhere do you mention this in List of Ingredients or in Directions to cook the casserole. Just curious and a bit confused about this. May you, your family and friends have a joyous Christmas!

    1. Hi Theresa,
      The milk is used if you are making the casserole with canned mushroom soup in place of the homemade soup. I hope that helps. Merry Christmas to you and yours as well!

  2. This is a great, quick and easy holiday recipe! A mandoline certainly helps this recipe to be a breeze to put together!
