This Spinach and Artichoke Scalloped Potatoes recipe is absolutely delish! So extra creamy and cheesy, with little crispy bits on top. This takes plain old scalloped potatoes to a whole new level of love.
My mother always said, “If you have potatoes, you’ll always have a meal.” She lived through the Great Depression, so they had to come up with cheap meals for a long time. There’s just so many different ways to make potatoes, and this one is new for me. I don’t know why I never thought of making these before now.
We’ve loved spinach and artichoke dip for quite some time. But it never occurred to me until this week to put that idea with scalloped potatoes and let me tell you it was absolutely delish! So creamy. Gobs of cheesy goodness. Topped with crispy bits, and a few more veggies for good measure. This just took scalloped potatoes to a whole new level! I’ll have a hard time making regular old scalloped potatoes again, after making this one.
I am so happy to finally be able to turn the oven on again without worrying about heating up the house! Living in the Midwest, our weather seems to be extra weird this year. We are still having days reaching into the 90’s. In October! The next is only high of 59. Then it’s suppose to be 86 again in a couple days. It’s hard to know what to tell your kids what they need to where to school. I’m sure they get confused around here, but if you have to stand outside and wait for a bus, you need to be ready for anything. If you live in St. Louis it can change in a matter of a couple hours some days. That’s why you always hear, “Don’t like the weather, just wait an hour.”
Having my new oven does help though. It is a double oven, so the top oven is half the size of a normal oven and the bottom is a big, full-size oven. Can’t wait to try both out for holidays, but the top is perfect for casseroles and things like that. I was still able to put my two Pyrex baking dishes in the little top oven for dinner, so the house doesn’t get as hot. I also think it really saves on energy too, since it does not have to heat up as large of a space.
We really did a lot of research before choosing this one, and we’re really happy with it. My old one was over 20 years old so this one has all the bells and whistles right down to a pot warmer and “Power Boost” burner than can get any sized pot boiling in minutes.
This Spinach and Artichoke Scallop Potatoes is easy to throw together. I would set out the cream cheese before you start peeling the potatoes. Just to give it time to get to room temperature, and add salt and pepper as you add the potatoes to the baking dish so they get seasoned nicely.
