What are the best potatoes to use?

I like to use starchy potatoes for this recipe, yellow, Yukon Gold and Russet all work well. It’s best to stay away from waxy potatoes like reds or fingerlings.

Can you make it ahead of time?

This is a great option if you are looking for a make ahead side dish. After the potatoes and cream have been transferred to the baking dish, let them cool completely. Cover with foil and refrigerate up to 24 hours.

When ready to cook, bake (covered) about 30 minutes or until heated through. Add the topping and continue baking (uncovered) 15-20 minutes or until hot, bubbly and golden.

What do you serve them with?

These parmesan creamed potatoes are great with roasted meats, fish, and of course roast turkey! Serve them up with your favorite veggies sides for a real feast. Try serving them with any of these mains:

  • Light or heavy cream are the best choices for this recipe. Milk or Half and Half have a tendency to “break”.
  • Cut the potatoes into similar sized pieces so that they cook evenly.
  • Leftovers will keep well in the fridge for 3 to 4 days and can be reheated, covered, in the oven at 350F until warmed through.
