Video: Classic Recipe Made Easy

Scalloped Potato is one of those Kiwi favorites and we can see why…

It’s a delightful addition to your family gatherings and potluck dinners.

Unlike some dishes, Scalloped Potato is perfect all year round, whether your catering for a BBQ or a Mid-Winter feast.


  • 4 medium sized Potatoes – Peeled and thinly sliced (the thinner your potatoes, the faster this will cook)
  • 1 onion – Diced
  • Cheese – Grated (make it as cheesy as you want)
  • 1 cup of cream
  • Maggi’s Sour Cream and Chives Potato Bake Flavoring mixed with your cream (for extra flavor)
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic – Diced
  • Salt + Pepper
  • Basil (fresh or dried)

Pre-heat oven to 180°C on bake

Layer the ingredients into dish- Potato, cheese, onion, garlic, basil, salt + pepper

Layer until you run out of Potatoes

But before adding final sprinkle of cheese, pour over cream mixture

Then gently shake the dish – this ensures that the cream seeps through the whole dish

Sprinkle on final layer of cheese and seasoning

Pop in the oven for approximately 1 hour

Take out when cheese is golden brown and you can stick a fork through the potatoes easily

 30 minutes + 1 hour

 Serves 4-6
