I’m not a huge potato fan.

Yes, I said it. I enjoy the odd mashed potatoes and gravy (once or twice a year) and I really like twice baked potatoes but I can do without potatoes 99% of the time.

However, these Blue Bayou Scalloped Potatoes are magic.

I will never forget when I first tried them, I didn’t even order them, my husband did. After his first bite, he went on and on about how delicious they were and was adamant that I had to try it.

Turns out they were the best scalloped potatoes recipe I have ever had.

  1. These sound delicious especially with whipping cream for added flavor! Pinned. So glad you share with us at Merry Monday.

  2. This sounds amazing! For the jalapenos, did you use the pickled jalapenos as well as the pickled jalapeno juice or an unpickled jalapeno?

  3. ?
    You had us put the potatoes and onions in, and nothing else. Please clarify the recipe.  Do you bake it some before adding what was mixed?Donyou layer the potatoes and mixture?  This is not complete. 

  4. Tara P and Janice Wood- I’ve never made this before but from reading the instructions and ingredients but here’s what I got from it. I’m going to say that you whisk all the wet, soupy and spicy ingredients in a BOWL except for the potatoes, onions and parmesan cheese. Then add the potatoes, and onions to the wet ingredient bowl and mix until everything is wet and now equally seasoned. Pour that into your 2X12″ pan ensuring the potatoes and onions are in a somewhat flat and even layer. Cover with foil. Bake. Add cheese before serving. Ding! ding! ding! Dinner time! (Hope that helps) Sounds tasty. Think I’ll give it a whirl… 🙂

  5. Does the Blue Bayou  potato recipe HAVE to be baked in  the 2×12 pan?  Could I use a 9×13 or smaller?

  6. I’ve had these potatoes at the Blue Bayou the first time I was there, and I the second time I was there I ordered the main dish based off of this being the side dish, this receipt is that good.
