POTATO AU GRATIN (CHEESY SCALLOPED POTATOES)

This cheesy scalloped potatoes or potato au gratin as it’s called is so good! It’s essentially scalloped potatoes with cheese

YIELD: 1 8X6 baking dish

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 1 pimento/flavor pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • JGM Products complete seasoning (as you like)
  • JGM Products cajun seasoning (optional) (as you like)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Season potato slices with complete and cajun seasoning. Set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a pan over low/medium heat.
  3. Sauté onions and pimento. Stir in flour followed by milk. Mix well to ensure no clumps of the flour are in the milk.
  4. Add a pinch of complete and cajun seasoning. Stir until sauce begins to thicken.
  5. Add potato slices followed by grated cheese. Mix well to ensure all slices are properly coated with the sauce.
  6. Pour into a greased baking dish. Top with cheese if you wish.
  7. Cover with foil. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
  8. Remove foil and bake at 350 degrees for a further 30-35 minutes or until the potato is tender and there’s a nice golden brown color on the top.
  9. Cool for a few minutes before cutting into it.

IMPORTANT POINTS:

  • The complete seasoning used in this recipe contains salt along with other seasonings. If you don’t have this, you can add salt, black pepper, dried thyme, garlic powder or any other seasoning you like. No specific measurement was given for the complete seasoning as it can be adjusted to you liking.
  • You can replace the evaporated milk with cooking cream for a richer taste. I personally prefer using the cooking cream
  • You can add any amount of cheese as you like. You can a different type of cheese or even a combination of various cheeses.
