I wanted to try a new potato recipe & this recipe was a perfect side dish to the main course which was ham. I love scalloped potatoes & I didn't want to make them from a box so I got creative & made them from scratch. I made this recipe for myself & my husband. This recipe can be doubled to feed 4-6 people.
In a small pot, heat butter on medium heat until melted. Add flour. Whisk until smooth. Gradually add milk, cream, salt, 1/2 tsp. black pepper, ground nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. parsley flakes, 1c. cheddar cheese & hot sauce. Bring to a boil & stir constantly for 2 minutes or until thick. Place lid on pot to keep warm.
In a 2 qt. glass baking dish, layer potatoes & onion rings alternately starting & ending with potatoes. Pour sauce over potatoes & onions. Add remaining spices & cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 for 65 minutes. Crumble bacon on top & enjoy.
