Scalloped Potatoes?

Anybody have a favorite recipe? Or any potato/cheesy variation? That's what I've been asked to bring to a pot luck for Easter dinner. We'll be having a buffalo roast and ham of some sort.

Thanks for any suggestions!

1. Try that Tyler Florence gratin from the roast beef thread.

A Heretic I Am kindly posted it with pictures, which were tantalizing enough that I made it myself, and now it's my favorite potato gratin. The cabbage really adds something extra, and doesn't taste cabbage-y. Clicking on the recipe will give you access to lots of reviews, and if you scroll down the original C & B thread, you can find another picture that I posted of it.

Thanks!

5. Hash brown casserole

Been making that instead of scalloped potatoes as a side dish to ham for holiday meals. Everybody loves it (even my picky-eater niece) and best of all no peeling!

9. Old tried and true recipe

My late sister-in-law was one of my oldest friends, we stared first grade together. She was a great cook and to this day, I use many of her recipes. Most are made from scratch. Here is her recipe for scalloped potatoes, I have made this dish too many times to count. I always make it when have meat loaf, both dishes can bake at the same time. When we lived in Alaska and fished for salmon, I would make this scalloped potato dish to go with grilled salmon steaks. I am guessing on the amounts. It uses only fresh ingredients, that is what I like about it.

4 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced in thin rounds.
1 large onion diced
1/3 cup flour mixed with salt and pepper to taste
Milk
Water or stock

Topping - Grated Cheese or bread crumbs

Butter casserole dish, layer of potatoes and onions, sprinkle with some of the seasoned flour. Keep making the layers until all the potatoes, onions and flour are used, make the top layer potatoes with no flour.

Pour enough milk in to come up to top, but not cover the top of the potatoes. Cover dish with foil and bake in 325 degree oven about 1 to 1 1/2 hours until potatoes are cooked. If it dries out, add a little water or stock.

Remove foil covering and top with grated cheese or bread crumbs, bake another 10 or 15 minutes until browned on top. Let stand about a few minutes before serving.

10. What kind of cheese do you use?

And you only put it on the top? None in the other layers?

Thanks for sharing your SIL's recipe!

11. Scalloped potatoes - Cheese Only on the top

Yes, like to have the taste of the creamy potatoes with onions separate and then the golden brown cheese on top. I use longhorn or sharp cheddar, which ever I have on hand. I use about one cup of grated. I try to go easy on the cheese these days. Same for butter, I used to use a little bit butter in the recipe, but started leaving it out and found it didn't make much difference in the taste.

13. I love this dish and make it frequently.

I prefer blue cheese and make the sauce separately then pour it over the potatoes prior to baking.

But you can make it with any cheese. Everybody likes cheddar, don't they?
