Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

Potatoes are one of the greatest storable foods and there are so many interesting ways to make them. My favorite potato recipe has always been scalloped potatoes and this recipe I found on Youtube by  Aussie Griller really tweaks the way I had been making them and takes ordinary scalloped potatoes to a new level. These cheesy scalloped potatoes make an excellent beautifully presented side accompaniment to any meat dish such as grilled steak or Bar BQ, but they taste great as a main course served with a side salad and a big glass of iced tea. These potatoes are so smooth and creamy they literally melt in your mouth. The recipe doesn’t take long at all and the ingredients are things you probably already have in your pantry and refrigerator.

Ingredients:

  • 1 kilogram of thinly sliced potatoes
  • 40 grams of butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 liter of milk
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper (to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (to taste)
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • freshly chopped chives (to garnish)

Directions:

First, you make your Bechamel (white cream) sauce and add cheddar cheese and black pepper. A little dry mustard can also give it a really nice kick.

Then you layer your thinly sliced potatoes with the lovely cream bechamel cheese sauce and add the rest of your shredded cheddar cheese to the top of the casserole. Then cover with foil and cook in a 350-degree oven for 35 minutes.
