Scalloped Potatoes with Ground Thyme. Oh, such an improvement on plain old potatoes. So delicious!
Scalloped Potatoes with Ground Thyme entices your tastebuds with a hint of thyme.
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen with Recipe Idea Shop. Scalloped Potatoes with Thyme are very inviting in the fall or winter when the weather is cool and crisp and a warm oven makes everything better. They are a perfect side dish for the holidays or anytime (in my humble opinion). We make them on the grill in the summer, too.
So last week I was hungry for Scalloped Potatoes with Ground Thyme and I made some on Thursday. I paired them with some Cuban Pork that I froze the last time we had it. Great meal! I just discovered that I never put the Cuban Pork recipe up, so I will have to do that. There’s always so much to do, isn’t there?
Great Side Dish, Many Ways
I think Scalloped Potatoes with Ground Thyme is my favorite way to have Scalloped Potatoes, but I love them just about any way they are made. Some variations include caramelized onions, loads of cheddar cheese, bacon, ham, or all of these. They are all yummy.
Don likes his Scalloped Potatoes a bit soupy (thin sauce); I like the sauce to be thickened. Some recipes call for a little flour or cornstarch to thicken the sauce, but if you use really waxy potatoes, such as Yukon Gold or red potatoes, the sauce will thicken naturally. This recipe produces a somewhat thin sauce.
