So versatile, so filling, so creamy, so crispy — potatoes are a must-have side dish for any holiday dinner. A ho-hum weeknight dinner is also a good time for potatoes. Any time is a good time for potatoes, really. These recipes are some of our most delectable. Some are slathered with cheese, others are baked with bacon, and still others are shredded, mashed or whipped into an irresistible dish. Potatoes work year-round, but their comforting nature is especially suited for winter's cold. This scalloped potato recipe, also known as potatoes au gratin, layers russet potatoes, half-and-half, and Gruyère cheese and is baked until browned and bubbly. Oh, yeah.
