Best Scalloped Potatoes
Do you want to treat yourself with a potato gratin, but you don’t have too much time? This is my favorite cheesy, creamy, garlicky, always-delicious scalloped potatoes recipe.
Scalloped Potatoes are an easy classic recipe, perfect for your Easter dinner, Christmas, Thanksgiving or even just for Sunday dinner.
In this side dish, thinly sliced potatoes are layered in an easy homemade cream sauce and baked until tender, golden, and bubbly. Potato perfection!
• 4 cups thinly sliced potatoes
• 3 tablespoons butter
• 3 tablespoons flour
• 1 1⁄2cups milk
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 dash cayenne pepper
• 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
• 1⁄2 cup grated cheese, to sprinkle on top
In a small sauce pan, melt butter and blend in flour. Let sit for a minute.
Add all of cold milk, stirring with a whisk. Season with salt and cayenne. Cook sauce on low until smooth and boiling, stirring occasionally with a whisk.
Reduce heat and stir in cheese. Place a half of the sliced potatoes in a lightly greased one quart casserole dish.
Pour half of cheese sauce over potatoes. Repeat with second layer of potatoes and cheese sauce.
Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Top with some paprika for color. Bake uncovered for about 1 hour at 350°F.
That’s it, all you have to do is Enjoy !
