This potato side tastes even better than it looks, with perfectly cooked tender potatoes and a rich, garlicky parmesan cream sauce and tons of cheddar cheese. Scalloped Potato Bundt is extra cheesy and creamy, and truly a wow-worthy holiday dish that you’ll be making every chance you get!

There are lots of things to love about Scalloped Potato Bundt, from gorgeous show-stopping look to the tender buttery potatoes to the creamy sauce. But hands down, one of our favorite parts is the crispy potato crust from layering the thin potatoes around the entire pan. You want to grease the pan really well with butter so that outer layer gets panfried golden brown and crispy.

Scalloped Potato Bundt before baking

While there is a little bit extra work to layer the potatoes in the pan, the Scalloped Potato Bundt recipe is actually very easy. The cream sauce is made by whisking ingredients in a bowl, no need to cook beforehand. Soak your potatoes in the cream as you slice them to keep them from browning and to save on a water bath bowl.

Scalloped Potato Bundt is a beautiful and festive way to serve these extra cheesy potatoes but you aren’t limited to a bundt pan. You can make individual-sized Scalloped Potatoes in muffin tins, ramekins, or mini loaf pans. Bake in a large loaf pan if you don’t have a bundt pan, or make on a sheet pan for all crispy crust potatoes. We’ve included alternate baking times depending on the size of the pan in this post!

Make Ahead Scalloped Potato Bundt

Assemble the Scalloped Potato Bundt ahead of time and keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 day before baking. Be sure cream sauce completely covers potato slices so they don’t brown. Cover pan tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil, and remove the plastic wrap before baking. You will need to add 10-15 minutes to the covered baking time. You can also freeze uncooked Scalloped Potato Bundt for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight before cooking.

  • Potatoes: You can use any potatoes you’d like, just slice them thinly. Try thin-skinned red potatoes or purple potatoes without peeling. If you use Russet potatoes or sweet potatoes, you should peel them first,
  • Cheese: Some other cheeses to try are smoked gouda, mozzarella, pepper jack, or gruyere cheese. You could also use sliced cheese or cream cheese between layers instead of shredded cheese.
  • Bacon: Add cooked crumbled bacon or Italian sausage to the potato-cream sauce mixture or sprinkle with cheese between layers.
  • Jalapeño Popper: Add 1-2 diced jalapeños to the cream sauce mixture. Layer tiny cubes of cream cheese with the cheddar cheese. During last 5-10 minutes of cooking, top with 1 cup seasoned panko breadcrumbs.
  • Southwest: Mix in 1 tablespoon Taco Seasoning, ½ cup finely chopped green onions, and 1 can diced green chiles to cream sauce. Use Monterey jack cheese or taco blend instead of cheddar cheese.

Other Pans to Make Scalloped Potatoes

  • Mini Loaf Pans: Bake covered in mini loaf pans (or ramekins) at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes, then uncover and increase heat to 425 degrees and cook 15-20 minutes.
  • Loaf Pan: Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes covered, then another 35-45 minutes uncovered. Layer buttered parchment and foil over top, and bake with another loaf pan on top to press potatoes for easy Potatoes Dauphine.
  • Muffin Tin: You will have enough to fill 2 regular muffin tins. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes covered, then uncovered for another 15-20 minutes.
  • Sheet Pan: Arrange potato slices over jelly roll or half baking sheet (18×13) and pour cream mixture over. Bake covered for 20 minutes. Uncover and top with cheese, then bake an additional 20 minute or until potatoes are tender.



  • Serve: Scalloped Potato Bundt is best served hot and can be kept up to 2 hours at room temperature. Rest at least 15 minutes before inverting so it stays together. 
  • Store: Cool Scalloped Potato Bundt before storing in the refrigerator covered tightly with plastic wrap or in an airtight container. Keep refrigerated up to 4 days and reheat in the oven to crisp outer potatoes.
  • Freeze: Cool cooked Scalloped Potato Bundt completely before freezing in a sealed container for up to 6 months. The sauce may separate when reheating in the oven, but it will still taste delicious.

  1. Could this be made in a 9×13 glass or baking pan and still come out crispy on top? It was good and tasty even though it didn’t get formed like a bundt when tipped over.

  2. I didn’t see where the four tablespoons of unsalted butter was used. Sorry if I missed it. I have made many of your recipes, love them, and even shared them with others.

    1. Thanks for catching that. I’ve tested this recipe a few times and decided to toss the potatoes with melted butter. I’ve edited the recipe to reflect that now. I hope you enjoy it.

  3. I have not made this recipe but i sure am going to make it. I have a Bundt Pan that is all a ll coated but still going to use the Pam just incase. I will have to change the 400 Temp maybe to 350 or 375 degree b/c the Fire Alarm will go off at 400. May take longer but worth it. Great Recipe and love baking it in a Bundt Pan thanks for a Easy Recipe and clean up.

  4. This looks delicious! How is the butter incorporated? Is it melted into the cream sauce or layered onto the potatoes?
