CHEESY SCALLOPED POTATOES

These cheesy scalloped potatoes are simple to make and taste amazing. Scroll down for the printable scalloped potatoes recipe.

Preheat oven to 350°F and butter your pan. Then line half of the potatoes on the bottom of the pan.
In a small sauce pan, melt the butter and then add in garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Whisk in flour, salt and pepper and cook another minute.
Next, slowly whisk in milk until smooth. Bring to a light simmer (to thicken) and then stir in 3/4 cup cheese until melted. Remove from heat.
Pour half of sauce over potatoes and then sprinkle cheese over top (about 1/2 cup). Then line remaining potatoes on top and add remaining sauce and cheese.
Bake scalloped potatoes for 50-60 minutes (uncovered) until they are fork tender and golden on top.
I LOVE adding lots of cheese to my scalloped potatoes but you can certainly cut down on the cheese if you prefer. I wouldn’t cut the cheese from the sauce, but you could cut it from adding as much to the top. But since it’s the holidays, you might as well go all out.
