SCALLOPED POTATOES

Being the owner of this food blog since 2008, I’ve found that around Thanksgiving and Christmas I’m on call for everyone – friends, bloggers, family, neighbors for recipe questions that might arise.

Not even necessarily about recipes on my blog, just cooking in general. I absolutely don’t mind at all. I love to help when I can. But my phone is literally blowing up with texts and emails.

That’s not even counting all of the comments on my blog. I respond to every single question in the comments on my blog and sometimes that can be up to 100 a day. Phew.

I have other blogger friends that tell me that they always tackle comments in the morning when they’re fresh and ready for the day. Not me.

We all know by now that mornings don’t like me and vice versa. My husband and I don’t talk until at least 10AM to keep things tranquil. He’s not a morning person either. We’re quite the combo.

So you could imagine what kind of response I would write to the person asking me if they can replace the cup of sugar in the cookies with a cup of salt if I responded in the morning.

No bueno. I decided a long time ago that nighttime is the best time. I’m a lot nicer.

INGREDIENTS:

4 cups thinly sliced potatoes
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 dash cayenne pepper
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated cheese, to sprinkle on top
paprika

DIRECTIONS:

In a small sauce pan, melt butter and blend in flour. Let sit for a minute. Add all of cold milk, stirring with a whisk. Season with salt and cayenne. Cook sauce on low until smooth and boiling, stirring occasionally with a whisk. Reduce heat and stir in cheese. Place a half of the sliced potatoes in a lightly greased one quart casserole dish. Pour half of cheese sauce over potatoes. Repeat with second layer of potatoes and cheese sauce. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Top with some paprika for color. Bake uncovered for about 1 hour at 350°F.

Every meal that I make has some sort of potato side dish. I don’t really think of potatoes as the veggie dish. I don’t think many people do to be honest. It’s like you have your meat dish, potato dish, and your veggie dish. I usually go for creamy mashed potatoes, but lately I have really been into scalloped potatoes. My mother used to make them all the time and I recently got into the habit for making them.

I really love this recipe for scalloped potatoes in the crock pot. It’s so easy to make! It really tastes so delicious and all you have to do is throw in the ingredients and let it cook in the crock pot. I mean how easy is that! I am a busy woman so any time savers are A-OK in my book! Try out this recipe and you will love it. It smells great when cooking and tastes even better.
