I love scalloped potatoes, but for some reason I have never even thought about making them homemade. Super easy and tastes much better than the cardboard you get at the store!
- About 2 lbs. potatoes, any variety (I used 7-8 good sized red)
- 2 Tbs. butter
- 2 Tbs. flour
- 2 cups hot milk
- salt and pepper
Scrub the potatoes. You can peel them or leave the peels on. Slice thinly.
Melt the butter over medium heat in a skillet. Stir in the flour and cook for a minute or two. Whisk in the hot milk. Keep whisking until smooth. Cook until bubbly and slightly thickened. Season with salt and pepper.
Butter the casserole dish. Put in the potato slices. Pour sauce over the potatoes.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until the potatoes are tender when poked with a fork.
