Re: Easter Food Plans

I do but it is very entailed. This is actually going to be my first attempt at making it. I got it from a very good friend who is an excellent baker.

Do share if you don't mind!

Can someone please help? We successfully lobbied to skip the wretched buffet this year, but my mil seems a bit angry about it. By way of punishment she requested we bring scalloped potatoes, a dish I have never made.

Does anyone have a foolproof method to share? Thanks very much.

Re: Easter Food Plans

I am afraid I don't have a recipe for scalloped potatoes. I know how they are made. You peel and slice potatoes, par boil (they should be just under done cause you don't want them to mash), drain well and put in a caserole dish or dutch oven, make a cheese sauce (a basic white sauce with sharp cheddar is excellent for this) mix with potatoes and I know in my family ham is traditional in this dish but I prefer them without. Cover with foil and bake until the top gets browned. I wish I could explain it better. This is what is done in my family when scalloped potatoes are asked for.

Thanks. I found a recipe and did a trial last night and they came out really good. The trick was to simmer in the cream/milk on the stove, then bake. And the potatoes had to be sliced 1/8 inch. It was the first time I've actually enjoyed scalloped potatoes.

I first made this recipe for Easter a few years ago, and I love it!! It's from Cook's Illustrated. I didn't want to type it but I found an identical copy online.

The changes that I make to this are: grate the onion instead of mince it, use a combination of half & half and milk instead of heavy cream (I did 1 cup h&h, 1/2 cup ff milk), and instead of sprinkling the top with cheese, I mixed the cheese into the sauce just before pouring it into the baking dish. I used a sharp white cheddar. It is fabulous! Let me know if you have any questions!

No clue?! Umm... We have church in the AM & will probably be out until 1ish. I'm at a loss because ds2 has food allergies & I do not know what a lot of the solutions contain. :/ and beef roasts are like $6.99/lb!! Insane. Can't do pork loins either because o the solutions.
I suppose I can do chicken but we've been eating t all week & I just made a pot if broth.
I know for sure I'll be trying gluten free bunny rolls and baby new potatoes and probably salad. I will try to find a safe ham that wot cost an arm & leg. Otherwise I need something my kids will actually eat. Lol

Thank you! It's the Holiday Scalloped Potatoes from CI that I used, and I followed it to the letter - tons of heavy cream! I like your changes. I think I'll mix some white cheddar into the cream, maybe a half cup, then put another cup of cheddar on top. I like the idea of grating the onion and minimizing the cream.
