Transcript:How to Make Scalloped PotatoesHi, I'm Stephanie Gallagher for About.com, and today, we're making scalloped potatoes from our Southern Food site.
Scalloped Potatoes IngredientsFor this recipe, you will need:
- 4 cups peeled and sliced potatoes
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp. finely-chopped onion
- 8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 2 cups milk
Preparing Scalloped PotatoesPreheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish with butter. Place half of the sliced potatoes on the bottom of the baking dish. Season with half of the salt and pepper. Sprinkle on 1 Tbsp. of the flour and 1 Tbsp. of the chopped onion. Top with half of the cheddar cheese. Then take 1 Tbsp. of the butter and cut it into small bits. Dot the butter over the cheese. Repeat the layers - first the potatoes, then the salt and pepper, the remaining flour and chopped onion and the remaining cheese and butter. When you're finished, pour the milk over the scalloped potatoes, making sure to cover them evenly.
Baking the Scalloped PotatoesNow cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 to 40 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Remove the foil, and return the potatoes to the oven to broil for a few minutes until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly. And here are your scalloped potatoes.
