The Best Ever Scalloped Potatoes

susan simons


My best friend gave me this recipe after her Mom had her over for dinner and she said "They were the best Potatoes ever." So I had to try them right away and try as I might to follow the recipe exactly I just couldn't bring myself to do it, I never can. I'm posting the recipe with my tweeks and it turned out to be the most awesome creamy cheese potatoes I've ever had and as my best friends mom says "Sinfully rich and a hair's breath away from cardiac arrest, but awesome."
Thank you Tanya and JoAnn

How to Make The Best Ever Scalloped Potatoes


    Melt butter in saucepan and add flour and brown lighly. Add dry mustard, pepper and cream and heat just until it starts to thicken.
  2. Layer potatoes, onions and shredded cheese in a 13"x9" pan and pour white sauce over...I layered the sauce and cheese in 3 layers.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees until bubbley and poatoes are thoroughly cooked- usually about an hour or so. I cooked them covered for 45 minutes and then uncovered to make them brown and a little "Crusty" on top.
  4. It's a great time to try a new scalloped potatoe recipe for Turkey day, give it a try and let me know what you think.
