Food Revolution Scalloped Potatoes

January 19th, 2012 No Comments Tags: , ,

Change is good. As much as I love my Spudnik Potatoes posted in the Food Revolution recipes many moons ago, I enjoyed this new addition to my ‘tater repertoire. I served this with cornish hens, a salad with a few veggies on the side as a Sunday dinner to bond by. Add some engaging conversation, holiday planning and humour and you’ve got a fine family din din.


2 Tbsp butter or soft tub margarine

1 onion thinly sliced
2 Tbsp cider vinegar
2 cups milk
2 Tbsp flour
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 yellow flesh potatoes, peeled and sliced thinly
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 13×9 glass baking dish.

In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 8 minutes or until they start to brown. Add the vinegar, boil, stirring and scraping up the brown bits until evaporated. Whisk the flour into the milk, then gradually pour into the pot, whisking constantly. Cook, stirring for about 5 minutes or until bubbling and thickens. Remove from heat, stir in parsley, rosemary, salt and pepper. Add in the potatoes, toss gently to coat in the sauce. Spread evenly into the prepared dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake uncovered for about 45 minutes or until golden and bubbling and potatoes are tender. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

I love trying out a new recipe in the New Year or any time. My family doesn’t mind being ginea pigs when it turns out well. YES, it was smiles all around and we had leftovers to use one work night following.

Give these a try and let me know how it goes!!
