Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes
Preheat oven to 350ºF and butter an 8″ x 11″ baking dish.
In a large saute pan, melt butter over medium heat and add onion. Saute until onion starts to caramelize.
Add flour and stir until flour is absorbed and starts to cook, about 1 minute.
Slowly stir in chicken stock and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Slowly stir in milk and pepper. Cook until heated.
Remove from heat and whisk in 1 3/4 cup shredded cheese. Stir until almost melted.
In the buttered baking dish, add 1/3 of the potatoes. Cover with 1/4 of the cheese sauce. Repeat with another layer. For the last layer, add remaining potatoes and cover with remaining cheese sauce. Cover with remaining cheese.
Tent tin foil over the top so it doesn’t touch the cheese and bake for 45 minutes. Remove tin foil and bake another 30-40 minutes, until cheese is starting to brown and potatoes are tender when pierced. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
There are two keys to turning out good potato croquettes every time. The first, a well-proportioned balance of flour, egg and potato. The second necessity is oil heated sufficiently for deep frying them. The recipe given here ended the diplomatickitchen’s search for one that would turn out excellent croquettes on a regular basis.
This dish is perfect for BBQ season. Because it can be served hot or at room temperature, it travels well.
This recipe serves 4 to 6.
By the way, I like to serve these for the holidays as well!
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
