    • MYO Scalloped Potatoes

      Make your own creamy scalloped potatoes for a fraction of the price of boxed scalloped potatoes, with twice the flavor with this simple, yet dirt cheap recipe.

      Once again, this is one of the recipes mentioned in our free downloadable ebook!

      1 Large Onion, cut in rings
      3 T. Butter
      3 T. Flour
      Salt & Pepper
      1 c. Milk
      1 c. Chicken Broth (make a little with bouillon)
      3-4 Medium Potatoes, washed

      Preheat the oven to 350F

      Cut the scrubbed potatoes into thin slices and toss'em in a 9"x13" pan. Place the onion (cut into rings) all over the top of potatoes, set aside

      In a saucepan over medium heat, Melt butter. Add flour, stirring constantly until it becomes pasty and then forms a ball. Cook for about 1 minute, continuing to stir. Add broth and milk (together) into the flour/butter mix, whisking constantly until creamy and thick (cooking over medium heat), but do not boil.

      Pour the thickened sauce over the potatoes and onions sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper, If you'd like you can sprinkle on some fresh or dried parsley for colors as well.
      Place in the oven.

      Bake at 350º for 30-40 minutes until the potatoes are tender and the sauce is lightly browned.

      Variations:

      • add chopped up leftover meat, veggies, etc. to sauce before pouring
      • Add 1- 2 tsp of Crushed Red Pepper Seeds for a little Southwestern Kick

        If you preparing this at an altitude of over 4000 feet, you need to cook the potatoes for a few minutes before slicing them. Otherwise the potatoes to do not get cooked completely even when cooked for an hour. Personal experience.

        I make a similar dish but double it and add cheese to the white sauce and I dice the onions and sprinkle throughout the potatoes. Everyone loves it!

        We love the cheese added too into the white sauce. Another thing my family enjoys is added chopped up pieces of ham. That makes it into a main hotdish.
