Smoked Scalloped Potatoes

Smoked Scalloped Potatoes

Smoked scalloped potatoes are a creamy, dreamy side dish to make in your pellet grill. Thinly sliced applewood smoked potatoes layered with milk and cream, topped with cheese never fail to satisfy. They’re tender with a mouthwatering aroma and a bubbly top that makes you want to dig in. This recipe uses gouda and cheddar for flavor balance and a nice cheese pull.

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 11 ounces heavy cream
  • 5 ½ ounces whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 large russet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (preferably with a mandolin)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 ounces grated medium cheddar cheese
  • 3 ounces grated gouda cheese
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced


  • Preheat your Z-Grills (preferably with branded applewood pellets) or other wood pellet grill to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Butter the cast iron pan and mix the cream, milk, flour, garlic powder, and black pepper in a bowl.
  • Pat the potatoes dry with paper towels, divide them into four portions, then layer ¼ of the potatoes on the bottom of the buttered dish.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pour ¼ of the cream mixture over the potatoes.
  • Repeat the above steps with the remaining potatoes, salt, and cream.
  • Transfer the pan to the grill grates, close the lid, and smoke for 50-60 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender.
  • Uncover the grill and increase the grill temperature to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Sprinkle the grated cheeses and sliced scallion over the potatoes in an even layer, close the lid, and cook for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is melted, bubbly, and golden brown.
  • Remove the potatoes from the grill, leave them to sit for 5 minutes, then serve.


If you don’t have gouda, use all cheddar.
