In this scalloped potato recipe, the potatoes are slightly cooked for a quicker baking time. Serve with pork chops, roast beef, or just about any meat or chicken dish.

Yield: Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh snipped chives
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation:

Heat oven to 350°. Lightly butter a 2-quart baking dish.

In a medium saucepan, cover potatoes with water. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to medium low, and continue boiling for 5 minutes. Drain.

In the same saucepan, heat the butter over medium heat. Add garlic and let cook for about 30 seconds. Add flour and stir until smooth and well blended. Stir in the milk and cook, stirring, until thickened. Stir in cheese, chives, and salt and pepper, to taste.

Arrange potatoes in the buttered baking dish. Gently stir in the cheese sauce. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until hot and bubbly.

Serves 6.

Good and Easy, Member wisewoof

I only used 2 cups of milk and served with fresh ground pepper. Delicious! Plan on cook time of an extra 10-15 minutes, just in case your oven is different.
