Scalloped Yum! - Aloha

1. Have you made scalloped potatoes before?  Do you like it?

Tonight was my first time making it. I thought it was yummy. I know the boy does't like the cheese in it (roll eye. Something about him and cheese. Bah)
The girl pretend to like it.
And I have no idea about the man.

Oh well. I thoroughly enjoyed it with steam veggies and a bun and a spoon or two of rice!

I used this recipe:

credit: google
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

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

  1. I have never made scalloped potatoes but I eat them, those sound delicious and easy :)

  2. I have made them, many times. I like mine w/onions and the kids adamantly do NOT, so they'd love this recipe. I like them w/o too. :)

  3. i am not a fan... lol, but i know i am one of the few...
    you know what is weird? really dont know WHY i dont like them... ha ha ha

  4. I will come back to this to try your recipe. I have never made scallop potatoes from scratch. I use the boxes...:-)
    We prefer scallop potatoes over mash.

  5. I love that you added cayenne. Those look delicious!

  6. I have made scalloped potatoes many times. They are a cold weather favorite at our house. We like them with a touch of Tabasco sauce. And, like someone mentioned above, sometimes I add finely chopped onions.

  7. I do quite enjoy scalloped potatoes, but I like pretty much anything with potatoes in it. I'm a starch kinda girl ^.^

  8. I'm not sure if I ever made any from scratch or not, but years ago I use to buy the box version. I'm going to save your recipe and give it a try. I do love scolloped potatoes,though. Very yummy!

  9. I haven't made scalloped potatoes in a long time - those look so yummy, I think I'll have to make them soon! It's funny that your son doesn't like the cheese - I thought all kids loved cheese! LOL! :)

  10. I haven't heard about this dish but it sure sounds really yummy

  11. I love potatoes and cheese, so I make scalloped potatoes from scratch a few times a year. I'm going to give your rcipe a try the next time I make them.

  12. YES... we love cheesy potatoes :)

  13. I have but its been awhile. Might have to remedy that as soon as the weather cools. ;)

  14. Oh boy! That would go really nice at my party tomorrow. WOO HOO!

  15. I love scalloped potatoes and make them during the cold winter months when I don't mind having the oven on in the house. I use Gruyère cheese which is yummy and melts beautifully.

    Happy Friday!

  16. Back when I was able to eat that kind of stuff....

    Have a great weekend!

  17. Yes I do and since I haven't had them in awhile, I will be craving them lol.

  18. Yes, Colette, I like scalloped potato. I don't make them but sometimes Mrs. Jim will.
    My favorite scalloped dish is scalloped oysters. They are made in a big pot and sort of lined with soda crackers if I remember right. My grandmother made them of holidays.

  19. I have not made scallop potatoes as my family don't like or eat potato that often. Thanks for sharing this recipe, as it might break my family's habit :-) when I'll try to make this.
