French Onion Scalloped Potatoes

French Onion Scalloped Potatoes 
Courtesy Betty Crocker

This recipe was part of our Christmas dinner.  I was looking for sides that I could prepare before hand and pop in the oven.  I had high hopes for this recipe and it didn’t disappoint.  Everyone at dinner went back for seconds.  It was THAT good.  Add this recipe to your list, you’ll thank me later!


  2 boxes (4.7 oz each) Betty Crocker® scalloped potatoes
1 package (1 oz) Hidden Valley® The Original Ranch® salad dressing and seasoning mix (milk recipe)
3 1/2 cups boiling water
2 cups half-and-half
3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 can (2.8 oz) French-fried onions
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, if desired

Heat oven to 400°F.
In 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish, stir together both Sauce Mixes (from potato boxes), the dressing mix, boiling water and half-and-half with wire whisk. Stir in both Potatoes pouches and the bell pepper. Bake uncovered 35 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Top with onions; bake 10 minutes longer. Sprinkle with parsley before serving. Let stand 5 minutes before serving (sauce will thicken as it stands).
Makes 8 servings
