Creamy Pumpkin and Cheddar Scalloped Potatoes
Creamy Pumpkin and Cheddar Scalloped Potatoes always land on my Christmas dinner table! My family and guests always love the creaminess of these potatoes. And who could blame them? Fork tender potatoes smothered in a creamy pumpkin sauce – absolute perfection.
Start by making a garlic sauce by sautéing garlic in butter. Add flour, milk and salt and whisk well before bringing the mixture to a boil and simmering until thick. Mix in pumpkin puree and start to layer up the potatoes. Bake in the oven and broil for the final few minutes to make the cheese golden brown.
