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.
From Fabulous Fat-Free Cooking. To cut down baking time, you can microwave the scrubbed potatoes for 7 minutes, turning them 4 times for even cooking. Wet the potatoes and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until tender. After you've scooped out the potato flesh, save it for another use, such as mashed potatoes or potato pancakes.
This is a version of Bubba Gump's cheese fries that I just came up with at the last minute. I had been craving them ever since I had them. Now if you are in the mood for something fattening, tasty, a little spicy and cheesy, this is the dish for you. *You may have to play around with the ingredients to get it right.*
I was the master mind who created these little gems, I like this because it's a bit different from potato pancakes and you don't have to fry these and you don't have to do much to your leftover potatoes!
If potatoes are on sale, buy a bag and make your own frozen french fries. Prep and cooking times are approximate. The true time will depend, of course, on how many fries you make and how thick you cut them.
