Scalloped potatoes

It was nice weather here today so we invited friends over to grill.

I made pumpkin bread (from Trader Joes)
and I am making scalloped potatoes right now. They are almost finished.
They look so cheesy and good! So I didn't follow the recipe so much as I used it as a guideline. DH and I used 4 large potatoes and made a lot more sauce. We had several layers of potatoes in a large casserole dish that we normally use for lasagna

DH is grilling chicken he marinated with his apple BBQ sauce
Our friends are bringing some veggies and salmon (but I dont eat seafood)

Cheese Scalloped Potatoes



* 1/4 cup chopped onion
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 2 tablespoons flour
* 1 1/4 cups milk
* 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
* salt and pepper
* 3 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced, not rinsed


1. Preheat oven to 350°F Fry the onion in butter until soft, add flour and whisk in with butter for 2 minutes.

2.Then whisk in the milk and cook (on medium heat) until thick and bubbly.

3.Remove from heat and add 3/4 cup of cheese, stirring until melted; season with salt and pepper.

4.Layer half of potatoes in a small baking dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with half of sauce.

5.Layer remaining potato slices on top of sauce and season. Top with remaining sauce and sprinkle with remaining cheese.

6.Bake, covered, for about an hour (mine is taking longer since I have so many potatoes and so many layers)
