Americans love potatoes, no matter how you slice ’em, it’s true. Here is a family recipe, very simple to make in a crock pot or in an oven-safe casserole pan, for Creamy Scalloped Potatoes. My grandma used to make them all the time, but now I make them for her!
First, mix 1 cup of cold water with 1/2 teaspoon of cream of tartar. Set this aside. Next, thinly slice one onion and place half the onion over the potato slices. Mix together about 1/4 cup flour with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and set aside. Next, peel and thinly slice two pounds, or about six medium potatoes. Place these in the water mixture, toss gently and drain.
Grease your crock pot or oven safe pan before placing in half of the sliced potatoes. Top these with half of your onion slices and half of the flour mixture. Add remaining potatoes, onions and flour mixture. Next, pour on one can (10 ounces) of cream of celery, cream of mushroom or cream of chicken (depending on your taste and preference) and a half can of milk. Top with 3 Tablespoons butter and you are ready to cook.
If using a crock pot, this will be ready in about 3 hours on low or in a 350 degree oven, this will take about an hour. Finally, add about 4 slices of American cheese and cook an additional twenty minutes to melt the cheese. This is a simple and delicious recipe you will love for years to come. If you don’t like onions, they can be left out, but try it just once with them and I’ll bet you will love it! You can also make it without the cheese at the end, too!
