There’s one side dish that always gets rave reviews: scalloped potatoes. (Seriously, has anyone ever said no to a scoop of these rich, buttery spuds?) Whether they’re a hearty addition to a cold-weather, weeknight dinner or dressed up with cheese and fresh herbs to be served as part of a holiday meal, scalloped potatoes are always a crowd-pleaser.

And, while we’ve all got our favorite version of this oh-so-satisfying side dish, there's nothing wrong with having a few variations on hand – especially if you make scalloped potatoes regularly. From potatoes baked crispy on a sheet pan to ones that are cooked in a creamy no-dairy sauce (and everything in between), here are a few tasty ways to make scalloped potatoes – with a twist!

Calling all fromage fanatics! These thinly sliced spuds are layered with the perfect blend of four distinct cheeses. The finished potatoes are incredibly creamy (thanks to easy-to-melt mozzarella and raclette) with a nice, nutty flavor from grated asiago and parmesan.

Who says scalloped potatoes have to derail your diet? Ellie’s recipe is decadent and flavorful (hello, grated Gruyere and fresh thyme) but lighter than most versions (she makes hers with 1% milk) so that you can stick to your healthy eating goals – even when you’re craving comfort food!

I love butter and cheese just as much as the next gal but even I have to admit that this vegan side dish is seriously delicious. It’s got silken tofu for creaminess and browned onions for a wonderfully deep and savory flavor.

Potatoes definitely weren't my favorite veggie as a kid. Give me a pile of mashed potatoes, and I was just in it for the gravy. I turned my nose up at baked potatoes, and forget about French fries.

Sure, they're good fried and mashed, but spuds have more to offer. Here's how to eat potatoes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
