Scalloped Potatoes for Two

Scalloped Potatoes for Two created by Chef shapeweaver

Since I sometimes have to cook for just me, I've been on a search for recipes that make enough for just one or two people. So when I came across this one in the TOH 2002 Annual Recipes that was sent in to them by Edith Jennings of Prarie City, Iowa, I knew I had to try it.The time for peeling the potatoes has been included in the prep time. I guess if you wanted to speed up the time it takes to prepare this recipe, you could slightly cook the potatoes in the microwave or on the stove top. The addition of the French Fried Onions was my idea. Sumitted to " ZAAR " on October 21, 2009.

    Oven should be on 400- 475 degrees and then maybe the tators would cook.

    The cheese sauce is very good but the cooking time and the potatoes are taking much longer to get soft and editable. I would suggest you put oven on 400-475 degrees for the time you suggest. I have had to cook this for over one hour and thirty minutes. Otherwise, I would have given this a five star review.

    I could never have scalloped potatoes because of life-threatening allergies. But now there are so many non-dairy options! And there are no leftovers! Thank you.

    Please don’t think I’m criticizing. This recipe is perfect for two people but I want to add a layer of onions to it. it. This is just a personal preference. Will this have any effect on the other ingredient amounts?

    Scalloped potatoes do not include cheese. When cheese is included, the dish is considered potatoes au gratin.
