Creamy sauce with a mild cheese flavor baked in with ham and peas. This recipe is really easy and I have never had anyone, not like it. Plus it’s affordable.
Easy and good comfort food on a cold night! I was rushed for time, so I sliced the potatoes and threw them in the microwave for about 10 minutes while preparing the rest of the ingredients and sauce. Also, put the onions in with the sauce to make sure they were tender. Baked at 400 for 45 minutes and potatoes were perfect. Also added a little leftover crumbled bacon to the top before baking – yummy. Sprinkled a little cheddar on top before serving.
To make this Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes you’ll need the following Ingredients:
4 cups thinly sliced potatoes
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 dash cayenne pepper
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated cheese, to sprinkle on top
In a small saucepan, melt butter and blend in flour. Let sit for a minute. Add all of cold milk, stirring with a whisk. Season with salt and cayenne. Cook sauce on low until smooth and boiling, stirring occasionally with a whisk. Reduce heat and stir in cheese.
Place half of the sliced potatoes in a lightly greased one-quart casserole dish. Pour half of cheese sauce over potatoes. Repeat with the second layer of potatoes and cheese sauce. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Top with some paprika for color. Bake uncovered for about 1 hour at 350°F.
