Low Salicylate Scalloped Potatoes

by | May 1, 2022

Am I right in thinking that one of the most indulgent ingredient combinations is the pairing of potatoes with cream? While this recipe doesn’t call for cream (though you could incorporate if desired), the simmering of milk and the addition of youghurt creates a creamy-like consistency, making for a decadent side dish. In our house, we like to serve our scalloped potatoes alongside a homemade quiche or roast chook. Simple to make, this recipe is sure to become a family favourite.


Low Salicylate Scalloped Potatoes

Serves 4



  • Grater
  • Peeler
  • Cutting board and knife
  • Saucepans
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Oven dish
  • Storage container



Sunflower oil (for greasing)

1kg white potatoes (rinsed, peeled and sliced thinly)

2 cups milk

1 tsp salt

3 Tbsp chives (finely chopped)

1/4 greek yoghurt (whisked until creamy)

1 1/2 cups tasty cheese (grated)



1.) Preheat fan-forced oven to 220 degrees celsius. Grease a baking/pie dish with oil.

2.) Slice potatoes so they are about 3mm thick.

3.) Combine sliced potatoes, milk and salt in a saucepan. Over low-medium heat, bring to a simmer and cook for 8 minutes, stirring so potatoes don’t stick to the bottom of the pan. When the milk has reached a thick, creamy consistency, remove from heat.

4.) Transfer half of the potato mixture into the baking dish. Sprinkle with chives and drizzle with half the yoghurt. Add the rest of the potatoes, pour the cooking milk over them and drizzle with remaining yoghurt.

5.) Bake for 35-40 minutes or until nicely browned on the top. In the last 15 minutes of cooking, sprinkle the tops of the potatoes with cheese and cook until golden and bubbly. When ready, remove from oven and let stand for 15 minutes before serving.

Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated for ups to two days. Wonderful served cold or reheated the following day.
