Beer Cheese Scalloped Potatoes

Dawn Whitted


When I first met my hubby his parents took us to a restaurant in the center of the Black Hills called Horse Creek that sat alongside Sheridan Lake. They had the best Beer Cheese Soup I have ever had. Which inspired this recipe.

These creamy scalloped potatoes are definitely beer cheesy. Hope you like them! They go great with ham, beef, pork or chicken!
