Here's a great scalloped potato recipe that's so easy and absolutely delicious. The leftovers are just as good, maybe even better, the next day. This is one of my favorite and most prepared recipes, from my 1971 Florence Junior Welfare League cookbook.
These potatoes are a staple in our home. Whether accompanying roast lamb or chicken, or just on their own, we have them a couple of times a week. They are delicious and the ones that get overly-brown in the pan and stick a bit are MINE! Clean up is a little tricky with this recipe, unless you line your pans with foil, but I find that just filling the pan up with hot, sudsy water and forgetting for an hour (something I apparently have no problem doing ;-)) helps a lot.
These potatoes are not quite as crispy like fries but they're better for you because they're baked. The serving size says 4, but I eat all of them at one sitting! Adapted from Ina Garten's book,"Back to Basics"(Barefoot Contessa). Ina likes to cut them into fairly large wedges, but I like them smaller(like french fries) because I love the crispiness and get more of it with smaller wedges!
Sweet potatoes are available year-round, but their prime season is really autumn and winter. Choose potatoes that are smooth and unblemished, and use them fairly soon because they don't keep as well as other potatoes.
Easy potato dish that's real comfort food! Simple and rich, made fresh at home with common pantry ingredients. Never buy a box of Betty Crockers Scalloped Potatoes again! Easy to halve the measurements to make a 4 serving size.
My mother asked me to bring scalloped to Thanksgiving dinner. This is my usual recipe. It's really easy to make. When I first started making it DD asked me to add chopped broccoli to it next time. When she's home I do just that. It adds a nice bit of colour and flavour to this dish.
If you use your food processor to slice the potatoes and chop the onions, preparation is a breeze.

These potatoes are just like the ones at our favourite Greek restaurant...Paros Taverna. They are lemony with just the right balance of garlic and oregano. I never weigh the potatoes...and I always double the liquid mixture....as we like lots of the reduction. I have reduced the salt to 1 tsp as the lemon/garlic/herb takes care of most of the flavour. And most of us don't need that much salt. The roasting time is appoximate as to the size of the potatoes.
Croquettes are delicious with steak and Recipe#292323 and strawberries dipped in chocolate. They should be shaped into patties and refrigerated ahead of time. The timing here does not include the chilling time. I have changed the directions about refrigerating the patties ahead and the number of patties after looking at the kind reviews. I do love this recipe and hope you do too.:)
This is a wonderfully different sweet potato recipe. I got it from Eula Mae's Cajun Kitchen recipe book. Part of the recipe can be made ahead. If large sweet potatoes are all you can find, cut them in halves lengthwise or into quarters after you have baked and peeled them.
From Ruth Reichl's Gourmet Weekly to you via my inbox, lol.
Her words: This scalloped potato dish is part of our culinary repertoire, and we hope it will become part of yours too. There is something about the texture of the potatoes surrounded by creamy goodness and topped by golden brown cheese that wows people. It is perfect for a buffet supper or potluck; in our experience, it is the first thing to disappear. The technique of starting the potatoes in a saucepan of half-and-half and ending them in a buttered gratin dish comes from the masterful Jacques Pépin.
Couldn't say it better myself, so I didn't. :) I did make minor tweaks to the ingredients/amounts.
5 ingredients and only 3 steps! This recipe was highly recommended by one of the nurses that I work with. It is an easy and elegant side dish from the Best of Bridge ladies. Excellent with ham or roast beef. Enjoy!
I really don't remember where this recipe came from. It makes a great side to any meat and has great flavor. I have made this with Russetts as well as the red potato. Results for both were still tasty! Yield is approximate.
These were an experiment I did for tonight's meal and I think they turned out pretty well. They aren't out and out low fat but the only fat used is extra virgin olive oil so it is a good fat and a little bit of fresh Parmesan cheese and you could use the reduced fat version of that if desired. So, far better than deep fried French fries.
As a young kid running the streets with my friends, I remember going to the back door of the neighborhood tavern and begging the cooks for pierogies. Nothing tasted better than those pleaded for treats. Since I can no longer do that, here's the next best thing. Hope you enjoy.
