Anders' Scalloped Potato Recipe

Scalloped Potatoes


Scalloped Potatoes are one of my favourite ways to enjoy potatoes. This recipe is really easy and pretty quick to make.

Ingredients:
  • 6 Large potatoes. Peeled or left with skin on, sliced thin (if skin on, wash well).
  • 4 tbs of butter
  • 3 tbs of flour
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 1.5 cups of milk
  • 1 cup of cream
  • 1 large onion, sliced thinly

In a sauce pan, melt the butter, then add the flower, salt and pepper. Stir constantly using a whisk. Simmer for a minute or two, make sure not to burn, stirring at all times.

Gradually add the milk while stirring followed by the cream. Bring to boil and simmer for a minute or two, stirring at all time.

Spread the potatoes and the onions in a pan or casserole dish around 2 quarts give or take.

Pour the liquid over the potatoes, cover and bake in a 325 pre-heated oven for about 90 minutes.

Check with a fork that the potatoes are cooked. Remove from oven and let sit at least 10 minutes prior to serving.

Some options here are, adding some 6 strips of cooked crisp crumbled bacon and/or cubed pieces of Parmigiano Reggiano rind, you heard me right.

The rind is wonderful in this dish when cut in to ¼ - ½ inch pieces. Try also Parmigiano Reggiano rind in stews and soups... just wonderful.

Scalloped potatoes go well with ham, or pork tenderloin medallions.

Bon Appetit,

Anders
