Scalloped Potatoes

(with white cheese, onion, celery and green pepper)

Scalloping potatoes can easily turn any dish into a casserole!

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups of milk
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cajun seasoning (optional)
6 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced *
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped celery
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheese

*note: Salad Shooter makes quick work of slicing potatoes!

  1. Pour milk, seasonings and flour into well sealed container and shake vigorously until well-mixed. Periodically shake to keep blended.
  2. If using 13x9 pan, make 2 layers.
  3. If using deeper casserole dish, make 3 or more layers.
  4. Spray Pam into dish, and make layer of potatoes. Sprinkle some of the chopped vegetables and cheese on top, and pour some of the liquid on top.
  5. Make another layer as above, and perhaps more, depending on the type of baking dish being used.
  6. Bake at 350F for approximately one hour.

HINT: to decrease making time, place sliced potatoes in microwave with 2 tablespoons of water, cover, and cook for 5-6 minutes. Then begin the layering process. Decreases cooking time by 20-30 minutes.
