I hate finding a great recipe online, try it, love it, only to lose it in the vast internet trash can, so I can never make it again.
With all the new food blogs, photos and recipes out there, it can be difficult separating the real (and good) cooks from the fake (interested in views only). For the most part, I stick to new recipes that are pretty basic. I’ve been cooking a long time, and I can tell if a recipe sounds too good to be true, or too gross to eat. For the most part I just need the basics, like how to make that sauce for scalloped potatoes. I seldom follow any recipe exactly because I like to add fresh herbs and garlic to everything.
Often I save my favorite stuff to Pinterest, but I now have 2 Pinterest sites and inevitably the recipe I want won’t be where I look. I need to get more organized.
For now I am posting the recipe here. It’s a great one for those who crave comfort foods. Another popular comfort food is Mac and Cheese(s).
My Scalloped Potato Recipe (with Ham)
Thinly slice potatoes to equal about 6 cups.
Chop ham into bite size pieces, or leave the ham out.
Melt 3 Tbsp. butter and mix in 3 Tbsp. of Gluten free flour (my preference).
Cook and stir for a minute.
Add 3 cups of milk and pepper, onion powder and chopped garlic.
Cook over medium heat until the sauce thickens and bubbles.
Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of cheddar cheese.
Layer potatoes, ham and sauce in oiled casserole dish. Bake 1 hour at 350.
