Homemade Scalloped potatoes ?

Discussion in 'Side Items' started by barneypoo69, Oct 19, 2011.

  1. I was remembering eating some homemade scalloped potates when I was younger at a family get together.Does anyone have any ideas on making this dish ? I've tried the "box" stuff, but it just isn't the same. I'd love to do some on the smoker but in the oven is okay also...........just have a craving for homemade.....any ideas ?

    you betcha Barneypoo, Here's one I used a lot at the Restaurant.[​IMG]

    3#-cleaned and thinly sliced potatoes - rinse under cold water to reduce some starch

    1lg.- Onion-Thinly sliced and seperated/seasoned (S/P)

    2tbls.-cooking oil(I use Corn oil)

    4tlbs.-Flour  -  reserve 2 tbls.

    1 cup-Milk

    4 oz.-Butter- melted

    1 cup- fine bread crumbs

    Heat oil and saute onions till soft , add half the flour and stir (on med hi) to cerate your Roux , let it stay light color (Blonde Roux) - this cooks out the flour taste.

    Transfer this to an over safe casserole, mix the reserved flour in the milk and add to casserole along with the potatoes. Stir to mix, then take the melted butter and add to the Bread crumbs.

    Spread this on top as a final layer .

    Place in a pre-heated oven on center rack and bake for 1.5hrs.(if your crumbs start getting too brown , cover with foil loosely.

    Now, set on a Trivet the thicken , add chopped Parsley and serve with a smile...;}-

    I use a Martha Stewart Mandolin to cut everything so it cooks evenly.

    Hope this helps you out , have fun and....

    I do mine pretty much this recipe, but I use half and half instead of milk. I also add some really good sharp cheddar too.

    If you do them on the smoker, you may want to finish them in the oven because they really take on a lot of smoke. If you leave them on the smoker long enough for the potato's to get done they really get smoky. Too smoky for us, but it may be perfect for you.
  7. I do them in the oven but I use smoked cheeses.
  8. Thanks gang........I plan on doing 'em in the oven.
