I’m going way back to my childhood when sour cream and onion potato chips were my jam! I also really loved scalloped potatoes that my mom used to make growing up. I suddenly had the idea to turn my favorite childhood chips into the scalloped potato version! The key to the best scalloped potatoes are the type of potatoes you used. I swear, buy Yukon Gold potatoes for the buttery, silky texture. They really go perfectly with the essence that is a scalloped potato.
FUN FACT: The word “scalloped” originates from the English word “callops”, which means thinly sliced meat!
FUN FACT: What is the difference between a YAM and a SWEET POTATO? A true yam is actually very dry, has dark skin and white flesh. While a sweet potato is from a different family with sweet and softer flesh, and different variations of colors. The yummy “yams”we are used to in the U.S. are sweet potatoes in syrup!
