My Review

I found this recipe through the a neat site called foodily.com. It basically searches food blogs and sites for recipes and then you search there site by ingredients etc. This recipe came from seriouseats.com. I had never stumbled upon this site before but I bookmarked it! 

I really like scallop potatoes but I have not found a recipe that is both relatively easy as well as tasty.

What I changed

I followed the original recipe pretty close. I used bottled garlic and dried thyme. I also doubled the recipe.

What I liked

Cooking the potatoes first on the stovetop and then in the oven resulted in perfectly cooked potatoes. This also allowed for the recipe to be started later in the meal preparations. I did cut the potatoes up then let them sit in water until I was ready to start the recipe.

What I didn’t like

The flavor was kind of bland. The thyme was okay but it needs something else as well. Also for me it did not thicken up as much as I would have liked and was a complaint of my husbands as well.


As is I probably would not make this recipe again. I do like how simple it is though and plan to play around with it maybe add some sour cream or other cheeses to the mix.

My Rating

Has potential

One last note. I hope to add pictures as I go. My camera is not a high end device so I struggle with taking pictures of my recipes. I hope to get a better camera soon. So for now I will add them when I can or use the original picture from the site I get the recipe. Also bear with me as I figure out a good format for writing my reviews. Happy Cooking!
