Specifically, these scalloped potatoes (which are technically potatoes au gratin). In my humble opinion, they are simply the best. And in the years since I originally posted this recipe here on the blog, thousands of you have also tried them and agreed! So today,
- 4cups thinly sliced potatoes
- 3tablespoons butter
- 3tablespoons flour
- 1 1⁄2cups milk
- 1teaspoon salt
- 1dash cayenne pepper
- 1cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 1⁄2cup grated cheese, to sprinkle on top
How To Make Scalloped Potatoes
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.
