Creamy Scalloped Potatoes Recipe
This is a delicious side dish can be largely assembled ahead: Leave off the last portion of cheese, cover the dish with plastic wrap (pressing it directly onto the surface to prevent a skin from forming), and refrigerate it for up to one day. Remove it 30 minutes before baking, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and bake as instructed.
Many Italian-American families have their own riff on this homey chicken-and-sausage dish: Some add sweet peppers, others white wine. Flour dusted on the chicken thighs helps them brown; it forms a nice crust and also thickens the sauce at the end. Braised in a broth that is infused with rosemary, shallots, and pickled peppers (plus a splash of pickling brine for zip), the meats get super-tender—and the aroma is sublime.
