Ingredients To Make Wolfgang Puck Scalloped Potatoes:

- 1 brick or package of cheddar cheese
- 1 cup ham
- 1 bunch parsley & thyme
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter
- 2 eggs
Instructions To Make Wolfgang Puck Scalloped Potatoes:
- Begin by preheating your oven to 415°F. It’s essential to have it nice and hot for the perfect scalloped potatoes.
- Generously Butter your cooking dish. This will prevent the potatoes from sticking and adds a delightful buttery flavor to them.
- Peel and wash the potatoes thoroughly. Then, thinly slice them. The thin slices will create the savory layers in your dish. If you have a potato slicer, this can work more efficiently.
- Then place a layer of the sliced potatoes at the bottom of your dish. This will create the foundation of your scalloped potatoes.
- Now add the layers of ingredients. Sprinkle some cheddar cheese, ham and freshly chopped thyme. These ingredients bring forth a savory blend of creaminess, as well as saltiness, and flavor.
- Continue layering the dish. Add yet another layer of the sliced potatoes, then repeat with the cheddar, ham, and fresh thyme. Keep layering until you’ve run out of all your ingredients.
- Top off the dish with the cheddar cheese. This adds a beautiful golden-brown crust when baked.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and chicken broth together. This will add an extra creaminess and flavor to your scalloped potatoes.
- Gently pour the egg and chicken broth mixture over the layered potatoes. Make sure that you pour it evenly throughout.
- Now It’s time to put your creation into the oven and bake. Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F. Let it bake for about 2 hours or until the top layer of cheddar is beautifully browned, and the potatoes are nice and tender.
- Once you take it out of the oven, sprinkle the top with parsley and your Wolfgang Puck Scalloped Potatoes are ready to serve. The combination of creamy potatoes, melted cheese, savory ham, and aromatic thyme and parsley will delight your taste buds.
