OLD FASHIONED SCALLOPED POTATOES

An Old Fashioned Scalloped Potato recipe packed with a rich creamy, cheesy sauceI am sharing some side dish recipes this week that our family enjoys.  Old Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes is one of their favorites.

I have been making this recipe for Old Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes at least 50 years.  This is a  basic recipe that  other ingredients can be added to for some variety.  I have added ham chunks, diced garlic, or crumbled, crispy bacon in the past.  

An Old Fashioned Scalloped Potato recipe packed with a rich creamy, cheesy sauceThis dish is by no means a low calorie, low carb or healthy one, but everyone enjoys it on a special occasion.

One of my daughters has to eat gluten-free, so when I know that she will be eating them, I can use gluten free flour. 

This recipe is great to take to a covered dish dinner because it serves many people, it can be prepared a day ahead of time and baked on the day of serving.

Wash and peel the potatoes.  Slice into thin slices.

Prepare the sauce first by melting the butter, whisking in the flour, half-and-half, milk, salt and pepper.

Add the Velveeta, lower heat to low, stir frequently
until it is melted.

Layer potatoes, onions, seasonings and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese.

Cover with half of the cheese sauce.

Add remaining layer of the same ingredients.  Top with
remaining cheese and cheddar cheese.     Bake
