Scalloped Potatoes (Curdle Free)

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by keeney

This is my Mom's recipe and I've never even wanted to try another. Turns out perfect every time, and is a must at Easter to accompany ham. Kids would kill me if I didn't make it!! I always add lots of thinly sliced onion (ratio 4 cups potato, 2 cups onion!), but I'll submit the recipe as is. Not quite sure how to post yield!

This is the same recipe/method I've used for over 25 years and I love it. Never curdles. I always bake it 1 hour and 15 minutes, though. I loosely cover the dish with a piece of foil for the first 30, then remove so the top browns. I've tried it with a layer of caramelized onions in the center which is really wonderful, too. I add half of the potato/sauce mixture into the baking dish, sprinkle caramelized onions over top, then layer on the rest of the potato/sauce mixture. Smells as good as it tastes.
