Potatoes Savoyard

"I was tired of baked, mashed, au gratin, and potatoes with onions so tried this. The beef broth gives it a wonderful flavor. Try it with different cheeses depending on what you have on hand!"

  1. Very nice change for a potato dish. I wasn't sure if I was to put cheese on the top, so I did and it made it nice and crispy. I liked the Greek seasoning, it gave it a little different twist. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
  2. I'm really enjoying scalloped potatoes made with broth vs milk. This is my 1st time using beef broth and it worked nicely. We cut the salt from 1 tsp to 3/4 tsp and still found it abit salty so next time I'll add only half and it should be perfect. I also added sliced red onion and switched the cheese to monterey.
  3. Outstanding! To me, this recipe deserves more than 5 stars for its extraordinary flavors, and for its ease of preparation. I used Jarlsberg cheese and Swanson's low sodium beef broth, and wouldn't change any of its ingredients. By slicing half the potatoes and layering them in the pan, and then slicing the rest of the potatoes just before layering them, I found it unnecessary to soak the potatoes in water first. A 7x11x2 inch baking dish is just the right size for this recipe. The beef flavor is so satisfying, you don't even need to serve steak or roast beef with it. Broccoli and spinach both go well with this potato dish. Thank you so much for posting this, Candy C! Lynnie
  4. WOW! Everyone who walked in my house while these were cooking commented on how good it smelled! And they tasted just as good as they smelled! Served with recipe#73846 and they complemented one another nicely. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
  5. This has become a definite favourite for my husband & me. I halve the recipe since it's just the two of us and use whatever type of cheese I have on hand - cheddar & mozzarella so far, but we're really looking forward to using Swiss. I find that the potatoes I usually buy (Yukon Gold) don't even need peeling since they get sliced so thinly. This makes for quick prep. I also tend to go pretty lightly on the butter, and they still come out great. I don't bother with the salt at since I generally cook with very little salt, and the Greek seasoning has such a wonderful flavour! I don't even measure it, I just shake an even coating over each layer. My tip for preparing this dish is to pour the broth over the potatoes BEFORE adding the final seasoning & cheese layer. Otherwise I find that the cheese and seasoning washes around into clumps.
