Low FODMAP Scalloped Potatoes

Low FODMAP Scalloped Potatoes are just like the classic dish, featuring starchy potatoes, cream and salt and pepper. Simple to make and serious comfort food. The scalloped potatoes are at home next to your favorite roasted meat or poultry. Fancy enough for guests but also easy enough for a homestyle meal. You can use russet potatoes, or a blend of russet and Yukon Gold potatoes.

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3- pounds (1.4 kg) russet potatoes, or a blend of russet and Yukon Gold
  • 3 cups (720 ml) heavy cream, lactose-free if available
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Position rack in middle of oven. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Butter the bottom and insides of a 3-quart (or 13-inch by 9-inch/33 cm by 23 cm) ceramic or ovenproof glass baking dish.
  2. Peel the potatoes and slice them crosswise very thinly, to about ¼-inch (6mm) thick. A mandoline will give you the most control, yielding nice round slices – and make quick work out of it. Regardless of how you slice the potatoes, make sure that they are all evenly sliced as this will help the dish bake most evenly.
  3. Measure out your cream into a large measuring cup and whisk in the salt and pepper.
  4. Place the potatoes in the prepare dish in an overlapping fashion. You can see in our images that ours are somewhat stood upright, which gives a nice visual effect. Pour the cream all over the top.
  5. Bake uncovered for about 40 to 50 minutes or until the top is lightly browned. Let’s sit 5 minutes before serving. Get ready to swoon.


FODMAP Information

Our recipes are based on Monash University and FODMAP Friendly science.

• Dairy: The low FODMAP diet is not a dairy-free diet. It is however, low in lactose. Many dairy ingredients are low in lactose, such as heavy cream and many cheeses.
• Potatoes: Potatoes have been lab tested and deemed low FODMAP by both Monash University and FODMAP Friendly. According to Monash, starchy baking potatoes, red-skinned, yellow-skinned and purple potatoes contain no FODMAPs.

Please always refer to the Monash University & FODMAP Friendly smartphone apps for the most up-to-date lab tested information. Foods will be retested from time to time; in the case of raw ingredients, such as fruits and vegetables, results may vary. All lab tested results are valid and represent a snapshot in time. As always, your tolerance is what counts; please eat accordingly. The ultimate goal of the low FODMAP diet is to eat as broadly as possible, without triggering symptoms, for the healthiest microbiome.
