I want to thank Kim at Savvy Southern Style for featuring my Hasselback Potatoes this week. Thanks Kim, I truly appreciate the feature!
I'm back with another great potato recipe. Potatoes are so versatile. You can bake them, mash them, fry them, use them in casseroles, in soups. Oh, the possibilities are endless.
Today, I'm sharing a recipe that I use for Scalloped Potatoes. If you like potatoes, onions and cheese then you're going to love this dish. Although you can omit the onions if you don't like them. One of my sons detest onions,(hard for me to even imagine) so I omitted them in his dish.
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups milk
2 garlic cloves-minced
1 Tbs. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 onion-cut into thin slices. Use however many onion slices you like for flavor. I use a lot because we all like onions, that is all of us except one son.
4 medium potatoes-washed, peeled and sliced into thin slices. I use my mandoline slicer for quick easy work and to get perfectly sliced potatoes.
In a large saucepan, stir flour and milk until smooth. (I use a whisk) Add butter, garlic and salt. Bring to a boil, cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, then add cheese and stir until melted.
In a greased 1 1/2 quart dish, layer onions and potato slices, then pour cheese sauce over the top.
Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 40-45 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
**You can use a casserole dish or separate oven safe serving dishes. I like to use separate dishes, it makes everyone feel special to have their own dish plus that way I can add whatever I like to each dish. ie. Lots of onions, a few onions or no onions. The last time I made this dish, I put little pieces of fried turkey pepperoni to each persons dish that wanted them.
This dish is one of my comfort foods when served hot, straight from the oven! I like to savor every little bite. So tasty & filling!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
