Perunagratiini – Finnish Scalloped Potatoes (Secret Recipe Club)

I almost posted this Secret Recipe Club post last week! Usually we are assigned to the first Monday of the month, and I made this dish on Easter Sunday, which was the day before I thought the post was due. I hosted Easter two days in a row…cooked and cleaned for 3 days straight and FINALLY sat down, ready to start writing. I have to admit, I was relieved when I saw that today was the day…I had a nice little breather ๐Ÿ™‚

My assignment this month was Camilla’s blog, Culinary Adventures with Camilla. Camilla clearly has a love for global influence when it comes to her cooking…she has recipes from many different countries. So much to choose from!


Since I was serving my horseradish crusted beef tenderloin for Easter dinner, I knew I wanted a side dish that included potatoes. This dish was great because I was able to assemble and bake it early in the day, then popped it back in the oven to reheat before serving.

Thanks, Camilla – we loved it!

Perunagratiini – Finnish Scalloped Potatoes
from Culinary Adventures with Camilla

5 baking potatoes, thinly sliced
1 large yellow onion (or 2 medium), sliced into thin rings
salt and pepper
approximately 1 1/2 cups heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a deep dish pie pan and layer potatoes, followed by onions, then potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Pour heavy cream evenly over potatoes and cover. Bake for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 25 minutes, or until edges of potatoes are slightly crisped.

  1. I love scalloped potatoes. I haven’t had them in forever and I have some extra cream in my fridge. I think that’s a sign to make these right away.

    Those look really good and pretty simple to make. I’m going to have to try these soon.

  3. What a great potato recipe for Easter. Simple but delicious. I was glad for the extra week this month too bc my husband is a Lutheran pastor and Holy Week is our busiest week of the entire year. Kudos to you for making two Easter meals two days in a row and cleaning it all up! Makes me tired just thinking about it. ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. Hi Melissa,
    These potatoes look really yummy! I clicked on the photo from the blog hop and when I saw that it’s your blog I thought to myself “Aha, no wonder: it’s Melissa’s blog, everything here is super yummy” :-). I make similar potatoes but I fry them in a pan, with only salt and oil. They turn out very crunchy. But baking is much easier, to stirring, etc. I should try this one. Among the other gazillion recipes from your blog that I need to make ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I have a Finnish heritage so I’m definitely pinning these. They look so delicious!

  6. Scalloped potatoes and cream…sound fabulous. So does that beef! Great job and now take a break from the kitchen ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes please!

    Unfortunately my post missed the blog hop due to tech issuesโ€ฆargh..here is the link as I’d hate for people to miss seeing Aly’s recipe and her wonderful blog – http://chitchatchomp.blogspot.com.au/2013/04/secret-recipe-club-april.html

    YUM! I love scalloped potatoes. My mom made them so yummy!

  9. So simple but I bet this tastes heavenly. What is it about potatoes and cream? They really are a match made in heaven aren’t they? Glad you got a moment to put your feet up after entertaining and didn’t have to write straight away.

  10. I am so glad that you liked the recipe. I had completely forgotten about these. I think I have some extra cream in the fridge. It’s a sign to redo them. Thanks for cooking from my blog this month.
