Favorite Ingredients Friday (Scalloped Potatoes)

Good Morning everyone! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange!

The recipe I'm about to share is from a college boyfriend's mother. I know, it's a bit convoluted. Barb was a wonderful cook and, during that time, I loved it when my boyfriend took me to his parent's house for dinner. Barb was kind enough to share many of her recipes with me and over 15 years later I still treasure them!

Here's one of my favorites from Barb. Enjoy!

Scalloped Potatoes


  1. 6-8 potatoes (sliced thin)
  2. 1/2 onion (diced)
  3. 1 can evaporated milk
  4. 1/2 to 3/4 cup flour
  5. parsley and/or dill weed
  6. 1 stick butter


  1. Layer sliced potatoes, 4-5 pats of butter, and onions, seasoned with salt and pepper to taste, in 9x11 casserole dish. Repeat layering until all potatoes are used.
  2. Heat evaporated milk and 1 can of water together in the microwave.
  3. Sprinkle 1/2 to 3/4 cup flour on top of layered potatoes.
  4. Pour hot milk mixture over the potatoes (just covering them).
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour.
  6. Optional: put shredded cheese on top and bake for 10 more minutes or until cheese is melted.

Wow, my mouth is watering just thinking about these scalloped potatoes. They're always so yummy!

I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe! Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

I must admit I always buy the box form of scalloped potatoes. This looks way yummier and much healthier. Thanks for sharing. I had no idea it was so easy to make them.

At 9:58 AM, Blogger Unknown said...

These look good and easy. I love scalloped potatoes, but never make them because my recipe is way too complicated. I'll be trying yours soon!

At 10:52 PM, Blogger Tammy said...

What? You make it without openning a box?
Seriously, we never had any kind of homemade scalloped potatoes when I was growing up. But this sound so yummy!

At 11:54 AM, Blogger Carey said...

These potatoes sound really good. Ive never made them from scratch before..i'm going to have to try them. Thanks for sharing.

May I just say that scalloped potates are one of my few weaknesses...baked the old fashioned farm way with hot whole milk and a full stick of butter, flour, salt and still my heart.
