Scalloped Potatoes With Cream Of Mushroom Soup

I love making scalloped potatoes with cream of mushroom soup. It’s a classic comfort food that never fails to please a crowd. The creamy and savory flavors combined with the tender layers of potatoes are simply irresistible. Here’s how I make my version of this delectable dish.


  • 6 large potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, and sauté until they are soft and fragrant.
  3. Stir in the cream of mushroom soup, milk, half of the shredded cheese, salt, and pepper. Mix until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
  4. Layer half of the sliced potatoes in a greased baking dish and pour half of the creamy mushroom sauce over the potatoes.
  5. Repeat with the remaining potatoes and sauce. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 45 minutes.
  6. Uncover the dish, sprinkle the remaining cheese on top, and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and the top is golden and bubbly.
  7. Let it rest for a few minutes before serving, then garnish with chopped parsley for a pop of color.

This recipe is a staple in my household, especially during chilly evenings or holiday gatherings. The aroma of the creamy mushroom sauce baking with the potatoes is truly heavenly.

Personal Touch:

I often experiment with different variations of this recipe. Sometimes I add a layer of thinly sliced ham or crispy bacon between the potato layers for an extra savory kick. Other times, I sprinkle some paprika on top before baking to add a hint of smokiness.

I also enjoy pairing this dish with a crisp green salad or some roasted vegetables to balance out the richness of the scalloped potatoes. It’s a versatile side that complements a wide range of main courses.


Scalloped potatoes with cream of mushroom soup is a timeless dish that never fails to impress. Whether it’s a cozy family dinner or a potluck with friends, this creamy and indulgent recipe is always a hit. Give it a try and savor the comforting flavors that will keep you coming back for more.
