Love cheesy potatoes? Then you’re going to love these Smoked Gouda Scalloped Potatoes, so rich and creamy!
I personally believe there is no such thing as too much cheese. When I’m at a restaurant and something comes with cheese (think pizza), I always order extra cheese. Cheese makes everything better. More cheese makes everything more better. Especially potatoes. Cheese and potatoes are a match made in heaven. Like this Smoked Gouda Scalloped Potatoes.
However, I know not everyone shares my love of excess cheese. My tight jeans particularly do not like my love of cheese. Mr. Sidewalk Shoes only shakes his head as he watches me eat my pepperoni with extra cheese pizza slice. So, when I knew I was going to make some scalloped potatoes to go with our ham, I knew there would be cheese. But how much cheese? Since the hubs and I agree to disagree on the appropriate amount of cheese, I needed something that would satisfy me and him. Enter Smoked Gouda. You want to get all that cheesy flavor without all that cheese, use smoked cheese! You don’t need as much it makes all parties involved happy. You will love how even a smaller amount of this smoked gouda makes these Smoked Gouda Scalloped Potatoes taste so cheesy!
So, go ahead. Make some happy potatoes.
