Scalloped Potatoes



My friend came over last night for supper, and she brought a slow cooked ham with her.   Scalloped potatoes always go well with ham, but I have never made them before.  I thought I would try it out and they turned out really well so I thought I would share.  This recipe makes 6 side dishes.  Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1.5 Lbs (approx 4 medium) russet potatoes, peeled and sliced paper thin (I use a potato peeler)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 ounces Gruyere cheese, grated (if you don't have any, use another white cheese like mozza)
  • 2 green onions
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees with a rack set in the lower third of oven. Combine sliced potatoes and milk in a large saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, and immediately reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until potatoes are just tender, about 3 minutes.  Mix in chopped green onions.
  2. Rub a baking dish with butter. Arrange potatoes mixture in the baking dish; season with salt and pepper. Dot with remaining butter and pour over reserved cream.  Sprinkle cheese over top.
  3. Transfer baking dish to oven and bake until cheese becomes deep golden brown and milk has reduced and thickened, 60-90 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
