This is a recipe that my mother would always make for us when I was a child. Blending the onions and celery was her crafty way to get us to eat this dish by disguising the veggies. Let me tell you, it worked great ;)

This was a really nice variation on scalloped potatoes and a great way to get some veges into the kids! I was excited because my no-potato girl took 2 helpings! I only had skim milk, so I used heavy cream and it blended too thickly in the blender, so I thinned it out with about 1/2 cup of skim. Excellent! The only change I would make next time is to reduce the salt. Made for Spring 2009 PAC.

I was skeptical. Put the milk, onion, flour etc in the BLENDER??!! Pour it over the potatoes??!! Bake for 50 minutes??!! Well I needn't be alarmed. What began as an adventure ended with a SUPERB potato dish. Who know that blending onions and milk would result with so much flavor? Great dish that I would have no problem making for guests. I had no need to broil as the cheese was almost crisp by the time the potatoes were done. I will add the cheese halfway through cooking next time.
