Trader Joe’s Scallopini Potatoes Review

Trader Joe's Scallopini Potatoes

It’s hard to go wrong with a potato dish from Trader Joe’s. Whether you serve them as a side or make them your main course, potatoes can be a great comfort food. The Trader Joe’s Scallopini Potatoes may not be the healthiest way to enjoy root vegetables, but they are pretty tasty regardless.

There are two ways to cook this meal: in the microwave or in the oven. We suspect that the oven method yields better results, but it also takes 45 to 50 minutes. Heating this in the microwave takes around 12 minutes, making it the faster option by a long shot. We nuked our potatoes in the microwave, and they came out looking almost identical to the potatoes on the box!

Some cheesy potato dishes skimp on cream and cheese, but that’s not the case here. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if this gratin contained more cheese than potato! There’s a great blend of cheeses here, including provolone, fontal, Grana Padano, and Montasio. There’s a slight tartness to the cheese that pairs perfectly with the earthy potatoes.

In addition to the healthy helping of cheese, this dish also contains egg, making it pretty hearty. The gratin contains 7 grams of protein per serving, which adds up to an impressive 24.5 grams of calories in total. As you might expect, it’s also fairly high in calories. If you eat the entire thing yourself, you’ll be taking in 665 calories. Thankfully, it’s substantial enough to keep you full for quite a while.

The Trader Joe’s Scallopini Potatoes are a great option if you’re in the mood for a tasty potato dish — or if you’re just craving lots of cheese. Since it can be heated in the microwave fairly quickly, it’s also a smart choice if you’re searching for a fast and simple side dish. Whether you serve this at a party or scarf it down alone, this is the perfect way to enjoy potatoes.
