For Easter I wanted to Elevate my scalloped Potatoes a few knotches in flavor & taste. I wanted to enhance the flavors by adding a variety of cheeses & other vegetables. I used a combination of 5 cheeses,combined with Fennel, sliced mushrooms, onions, garlic & a rainbow of sweet mini peppers. The spices brought all of the flavors together nicely,& adding precooked sliced golden yukon potatoes with the creamed sauce, gave the potatoes the elevated flavors I was looking for when combined with the various flavors and textures of cheese. Plus it shortened the cooking time in the oven.
