Scalloped Potatoes

This is a very old fashioned American dish, made as many ways as there are Americans.


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Wash and peel 6 medium potatoes and bake for one hour. Leave oven on! Allow potatoes to cool, and grate them into a large bowl.

1/4 cup green onions sliced thinly
3 Tablespoons flour
1 Teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated pepper
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cup milk
1 cup sour cream
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese

Grease a 2 quart casserole. Spread 1/4 of the potatoes on the bottom of the casserole, and sprinkle with 1/3 of the sliced green onion, 1 Tbsp flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, dash of pepper, 1 Tablespoon butter, and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Repeat two more layers, finishing with the last layer of potato on top, covered by the last 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese.

Heat milk just to scalding, add sour cream, stir well and pour over potato mixture. Cover, pop in the heated oven and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover, and cook an additional 30 minutes. Let stand 5 – 10 minutes before serving. Serves 4 – 6 people.
