What kind of potatoes are best for scalloped potatoes?

Usually Russet Potatoes or Yukon Golds Russets have the most starch and make the creamiest sauce, but Yukons tend to hold their shape a little better.

Do scalloped potatoes freeze well?

 
 

If you plan to freeze the scalloped potatoes, the potatoes need to be removed from the oven before they finish cooking to protect their texture. Once you freeze the potatoes, you may want to thaw them in the refrigerator or bake them frozen.
