Looking for the ultimate savoury side dish? These classic low FODMAP scalloped potatoes will be a family favourite in no time!
When I was a kid, we used to drive my mom up the wall asking for scalloped potatoes. When she finally caved in, it always felt like winning the lottery (even though she usually served them with my least favourite food – ham).
There was something about that rich, creamy sauce and all those skinny little potatoes that felt like magic! So I’m pretty excited to be sharing them so you can have something special for your table, too!
Keep it FODMAP friendly
These easy low FODMAP scalloped potatoes are the perfect sidekick for any meat and potatoes dish! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.
First up, potatoes. According to Monash University, potatoes don’t have any detectable FODMAPs. That means you can eat as many as you’d like without adding to your FODMAP load.
We’ll also be using whole milk. If you’re in the elimination phase of the program, you’ll need to use lactose-free milk. For my North American peeps, both Lactantia and Natrel have lactose-free lines that go up to 35%.
Next up, flour. If you’re in the elimination phase, you’ll need to use gluten-free flour. Make sure to check the ingredients for other sneaky FODMAPs! Just because a product is free from one FODMAP doesn’t mean it’s free from them all.
Remember, unless you have celiac disease, you’re managing the FODMAP fructan in wheat, not gluten itself.
Last but not least, leeks. According to the Monash app, the green part of a leek is low fodmap in servings of 2/3 of a cup (54 g) per sitting. Servings of 1 cup (75 g) or more are high in the FODMAP mannitol.
We’ll be using 1/2 a cup of leeks total, which works out to 6.5 g per serving. This is well within Monash’s recommended range.
