How To Make Scalloped Potatoes
Step 1: Preparing the Potatoes
Wash and peel potatoes. Slice potatoes ⅛ to ¼ inch thick. Place potatoes in a large bowl of water until your are finished slicing them.
Step 2: Making the Cheese Sauce
In a large frying pan, melt butter and add onions and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes, sprinkle with flour and cook for a few minutes longer. Next, pour broth, along with the seasoning, salt and pepper, and heavy cream into onion mixture. Stir until thickened then remove from heat just prior to boiling. Lastly, stir in 2 cups of cheddar cheese. And that’s the cheese sauce.
Step 3: Layering Scalloped Potatoes
Next, spray a large baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Drain potatoes and start out by adding ⅓ of the potato slices to the bottom of the baking dish. Then add ⅓ of the sour cream, ⅓ of the cheese sauce and then ⅓ of the Parmesan, pepper jack and cheddar cheese. Once the first layer is complete, repeat two more times ending with cheddar cheese.
Step 4: Baking Scalloped Potatoes
Cover with foil, pop in the oven and cook for 1 ½ to 2 hours. About 15 minutes before removing from oven, remove the foil and crisp up the cheese a bit. That’s it! Time to enjoy these tasty cheesy potatoes.
