Scalloped potatoes are a classic side dish, and one of my absolute favorites at any and every holiday. Who am I kidding? Scalloped potatoes are my favorite side dish for any meal. As you’re planning your menu for this upcoming holiday though, these should definitely be making an appearance!

This recipe for scalloped potatoes is beautiful and delicious, but it lacks one teeny thing – all of the dairy. Don’t worry though, it’s still every bit as creamy as your Grandma’s recipe, and I promise it’s a side dish you’ll want to make over and over again.
I used chicken bone broth collagen from Vital Proteins. It’s a powdered form of bone broth which has replaced all of my liquid boxed bone broth. I realized how much money I was wasting by opening a container of the liquid broth, using one or two cups for a recipe, and letting the rest go bad.
Boxed broth is only good for 7 days once it’s opened, and somehow it always ended up in the back of my fridge, lost and forgotten about. This was a huge waste of money, especially because bone broth isn’t cheap. I also ended up stock piling it in my cupboard, wasting tons of space. Vital Proteins bone broth solves both those issues and I’m just happy to invest in a product that means I’m not wasting money not using up all of my bone broth.

Not only am I not wasting money or valuable cabinet space on storing containers of broth, I’m getting tons of added health benefits from the collagen. Some of the many benefits of adding collagen to your diet are improved joint pain and degeneration, helps with leaky gut, digestion, improves skin, nails and hair, speeds up recovery time after illness and workouts and about a hundred other things. Plus this powdered broth can be used exactly the same way as the liquid stuff, making it a super easy and healthier switch.
It works perfectly in these scalloped potatoes to make a rich and creamy sauce the potatoes will cook in. I added some mushrooms and onions prior to cooking, and didn’t forget the garlic! This side dish really is one of the best tasting scalloped potatoes I’ve had in a while. And I’m not just sayin’ that because I made them!
