Jessica was thinking of something cozy to make for Christmas Eve at home this year, and she thought scalloped potatoes would be the perfect side dish to her meatloaf.

Growing up, scalloped potatoes were her favorite dish anytime her mom would make them.

This creamy dish comes together quickly and is so delicious!

This segment aired on California Cooking with Jessica Holmes, Episode 138.
