I think Ive found my ultimate potato dish, this is superb, a real taste sensation.
These potatoes had such excellent flavor. It makes a lot. I might reduce the amount of broth the next time as it was a little runny on the bottom, but otherwise, these were excellent.
NOT GOOD AS WRITTEN!! Please do not cook the potatoes for 8 minutes, you will end up with a mushy mess. Whoever wrote about 8 minutes was off by about 4 minutes. The potatoes were so over cooked before baking I was afraid to put in the broth as I thought it would turn to soup. I could tell you what I did to doctor it up but it would be a totally different recipe! The pesto part is great and I am glad I made extra. I have never made scalloped potatoes before and I just checked 5 other recipes... none of them call for cooking the potatoes before baking them.
I too, saw this on Oprah and just had to try it. That was several years ago and now it is one of my most successful and requested recipes. Once, I tried marjoram instead of basil and it was even better! The pesto makes this dish. You gotta try it!
Sundried Tomatoes, Potatoes and Cheese - 3 of my food groups in a perfect world! I saw Art Smith demo it on Oprah and made it for Thanksgiving that year (2001). It was amazing and I had forgotten about it. I think that using sharp cheddar (white if possible) yields best results. And the sundried tomato pesto - #14784 - is great on its own as well as in the dish. Try it! Thanks for reminding me of it.
This was to die for!!!!!!! SOOOOOO good! I used medium cheddar and my whole family enjoyed!!! Thanks!
