Scalloped Potatoes are the perfect potato casserole! Tender potatoes in a creamy onion sauce baked to golden perfection.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 pounds white potatoes sliced about 1/8 inch thick
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350˚F.
Sauce
  • To make the sauce, melt butter, onion and garlic over medium low heat. Cook until onion is softened, about 3 minutes. Add flour and cook for 1-2 minutes. 
  • Reduce heat to low. Combine milk and broth. Add a small amount at a time whisking to thicken. The mixture will become very thick, continue adding a little bit of liquid at a time whisking until smooth.
  • Once all of the liquid has been added, bring to a boil over medium heat while continuing to whisk.  Stir in salt and pepper and let boil 1 minute.
Assembly
  • Grease a 9"x13" baking dish. Place 1/3 of the potatoes in the bottom and season with salt and pepper. Pour 1/3 of the cream sauce sauce over top. 
  • Repeat layers ending with cream sauce. Cover and bake for 45 minutes.
  • Uncover and bake for an additional 35-45 minutes or until golden brown and potatoes are tender. Broil for 3-4 minutes to obtain a golden top.
  • Allow to rest for 15 minutes before serving.
