How to Make Creamy/cheesy scalloped potatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 deg F.
    Spray casserole dish with cooking oil spray or grease casserole dish with shortening.
  2. Saute onion in butter.
  3. Add 1/4 cup flour, salt, mustard and pepper to onion and butter.
  4. Gradually add milk/cream whisking to make a nice white sauce. Stir and cook until thick.
  5. Add shredded cheese, potatoes and ham (if so desired). Stir all ingredients together. Add a bit more milk if needed. The potatoes will absorb some of the milk so you may need a little more. Pour into greased casserole dish.

    Then, spread more cheese on top and bake for 10-15 min longer before removing from oven.
    ENJOY! These are very cheesy and rich, yummy!
