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.
