This is a recipe in my Fannie Farmer cookbook that I just recently found and tried. I didn't know that scalloped potatoes was such a simple dish to make.

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Butter a 1 1/2 quart casserole.
  3. Cover the bottom of the casserole with a single layer of potatoes.
  4. Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, flour and a few dots of butter.
  5. Repeat until all of the potato slices are used.
  6. Pour milk over the potato slices until the top is almost covered.
  7. Dot with the remaining butter.
  8. Bake for 1 hour or until the potatoes are soft.

I personally think this recipe is awesome. My grandmother has made THE BEST Scalloped potatoes since I was little. I mean really good ones. I asked her for her recipe about a year ago only to my surprise to find out this Fannie Farmer was the same recipe, my grandma is in her 80's.
