Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Cheesy Potatoes will make you a hero at your family get togethers. Cheddar cheese, sun dried tomato pesto, and scalloped potatoes combine for an easy, rich, creamy and cheesy side dish recipe.
Who doesn’t love potatoes, especially cheesy potatoes with sun dried tomato pesto. I love potatoes prepared just about any way you can fix them, fried, baked, mashed, sautéed, roasted, you name it.
For holidays, we usually have mashed potatoes, but I also love scalloped potatoes and potatoes au grain. This scalloped potato recipe adds cheddar cheese, sun dried tomato pesto, salt and pepper, and chicken broth to the potatoes. That’s it. Easy!
To make slicing the potatoes faster, easier, and more consistent, you can use your food processor, or you can do it tried and true way of slicing them yourself. It tastes just as delicious either way.
