I can’t believe it! This is my Dad’s scalloped potatoes recipe. He died when I was 11, (I’m 58 now) but one of my fondest memories as a little girl was sitting at our kitchen table together and him teaching me how to make this recipe.
No measurements were used, just peeling and slicing the potatoes and onions and layering in the casserole dish with sprinkled-on flour, small pats of butter, salt and pepper (on each layer), then pouring milk on top just until it peeked through the potatoes at the top. Sometimes he put pork chops on top before baking. Best scalloped potato recipe ever! (Miss you Dad).
4cups thinly sliced potatoes
1 1⁄2cups milk
1dash cayenne pepper
1cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1⁄2cup grated cheese, to sprinkle on top
HOW TO MAKE:
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.
