I recently stumbled across boxed gluten free scalloped potatoes, as well as boxed gluten free au gratin potatoes and was beyond giddy! Boxed scalloped and au gratin potatoes had always been a total comfort food, and something that’s easy to throw together for a side dish.
Did they live up to my excitement? The answer is a resounding YES!
While my super picky 5 year olds wouldn’t touch them, my spouse and I gobbled them up. They were just like the boxed scalloped potatoes we grew up eating, but gluten free!

I happened to find these while putting in an online order at my local Shoprite grocery store. However, if your local supermarkets don’t carry these glorious Idahoan Gluten Free Scalloped Potatoes, you can always buy them online. I’ve seen them on Amazon, and you can buy them in bulk.

How To Cook Idahoan Gluten Free Scalloped Potatoes
Here are the directions from the box (in case you threw it out!):
Best for Golden Browning
- Preheat oven* to 450°F. Combine potatoes and sauce mix in 1½-quart baking dish.
- Stir in 1½ cups boiling water, ¾ cup milk, and 1 Tbsp. butter or margarine with whisk.
- Bake uncovered for 25 minutes or until top is golden brown and potatoes are tender. Remove from oven and let stand a few minutes before serving (sauce will thicken slightly when cooling).
Stove Top Preparation
- Heat potatoes and sauce mix, 1½ cups boiling water, ¾ cup milk, and 1 Tbsp. butter or margarine to boil in 2-quart saucepan over high heat, stirring occasionally. Watch carefully to avoid boilover.
- Reduce heat, then cover and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat and let stand a few minutes before serving (sauce will thicken slightly when cooling).
* Alternative cook times for a conventional oven:
- at 325 degrees, bake 45 – 50 min. or until tender
- at 350 degrees, bake 40 – 45 min. or until tender
- at 375 degrees, bake 35 – 40 min. or until tender
- at 400 degrees, bake 30 – 35 min. or until tender
- at 425 degrees, bake 25 – 30 min. or until tender
NOTE: If a more golden brown color is desired, bake 5 additional minutes.
Double batch: Bake at 400 degrees 35 – 40 min. or until tender.
Also, we like to add some freshly sliced onions to our scalloped potatoes. This really adds a nice contrast in flavor and also pairs well with beef mains.
