Not to be confused with the baked potato, potato bakes require a bit more preparation and a pan, but they’re still refreshingly easy to make and the results always speak for themselves. From savory scalloped potatoes to creamy casseroles, the possibilities are endless for this versatile ingredient. If you like, love, or are curious to try a sizzling potato bake, we have assembled a list of our favorites bakes for your viewing and cooking pleasure.
