Potato Scallop

Scalloped potatoes can be so much more than those that come from a box.  If you have a food processor with a slicing blade, or a good mandolin, making scalloped potatoes from scratch is simple.  You only need a basic knowledge of how to make white sauce to get you started!  This one is the simplest of all.  No white sauce is needed.  Just slices of potatoes and milk.  Build from this recipe to make your own special dish.  Add bacon, cheese, sliced onions… the possibilities are endless!

Potato Scallop

6 medium-sized potatoes

2 tbsp. flour

1 ½ tsp. salt

Pepper

2 tbsp. fat

2 cups hot milk

Peel and slice the potatoes. Put a layer of potatoes in a greased baking dish. Sprinkle with part of flour. Dot with fat. Repeat until all the potatoes are used. Pour in the milk – use very fresh milk or it may curdle. Bake in a moderate oven (350ºF) for 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender and browned on top. Add more milk if the potatoes get dry.
