Scalloped Potatoes

One of the classic Mike recipe’s and one of his favorite all-time dishes is scalloped potatoes.  Mike makes this dish whenever he has a potluck and for pretty much every holiday meal. He has been having this since he was a kid and there usually is a fight over who gets the top, which is crunchy and delicious. I have never posted this before and thought that it would be a fun dish to share.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Cuisine: Side
Serves: 8
  • 3 Large Potatoes
  • 4 Tbsp of Flour
  • 4 Tbsp of Dehydrated Onions
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 4 Tbsp Butter
  • 16 Ounces of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 Cups of Milk
  1. Peel & slice potatoes as needed into about ⅛” slices or thinner. Too thick and they will take a long time to cook.
  2. Layer potatoes in bottom of dish and then add 1 Tbsp flour, 1 Tbsp dehydrated onions, ¼ tsp pepper, ½ tsp salt, 1Tbsp butter (cut into ¼ Tbsp pieces) and distributed on top of everything, a little more is ok. All ingredients should be spread around the whole layer, don’t just dump it all in the middle.
  3. Add shredded cheddar cheese to the top of the layer, about ½” thick or 4 ounces.
  4. Repeat entire process for each layer, and on the final top layer, add a bit more cheese. You will want a total of four layers.
  5. Finally, add milk until you can see it just below the top layer at the edge of the dish.
  6. Cover and cook in a 350 degree oven for 90 minutes, until the potatoes are fork tender (a fork passes easily thru them). Take the cover off for the last 30 minutes. It is recommended that you place a cookie sheet under the dish to catch overflow. Let cool for 15 minutes and enjoy!
