Kristacular’s Scalloped Potatoes

I halfway created this recipe for Saucymama’s Fall recipe contest last week.

I searched the internet for a while and found a few recipes to mimic my grandmother’s recipe, as she is MIA on another senior cruise:):)

I took a few ideas from each of them and came up with the following recipe!!!!! The spices rise up to the top of the mixture, and leaves the bottom creamy and the top crunchy with lots of flavor. I was pleased with myself:):)

3 lbs. Potatoes
4 Shallots
2 cloves of garlic, minced
4 T Butter
1 cp. Milk
1 cp. Cream ( I used half & half)
8 oz. Goat cheese
1 t Salt (or to taste)
1 t Pepper
1 T Herbs De Provence
1 T Flour

Topping:

1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely shredded parmesan ( you can have less if you so desire)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Skin the potatoes and slice them to about 1/8″ thick. And layer in a casserole dish.

Mix topping ingredients together

Melt butter in your dutch oven, and saute the onions until tender, add garlic once onions are tender.

Stir in flour, salt, pepper, and seasoning. Cook stirring constantly until bubbly and remove from heat.

Stir in milk and cream and cheese, heat until boiling stirring constantly until cheese is melted.

Pour mixture over potatoes and spread topping over. Bake for approximately 1 hour. (My stove is a bit weaker than yours is I’m sure) Until golden brown and crispy and potatoes are tender!

YUM!!!!
