Scalloped Potato Recipe

I received a few requests for the recipe to the scalloped potatoes I made yesterday.  Here it is. I hope you like it.
The picture makes them look cheesy.

[Please note these are scalloped potatoes, not au gratin, so they are made without cheese.*] 

5 large white potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
3/4 cup chopped onion
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup flour
1 3/4 cups chicken broth [low sodium if you like]
2 tablespoons mayo
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt [I omit]
paprika

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

1.  In 2 1/2 quart casserole dish layer half of the potatoes.
2.  In skillet melt butter.  Saute onion in butter until soft and translucent.
3.  Add flour and stir until well mixed.
4.  Add chicken broth. Stir until thick and bubbly.  Stir in mayo and s & p.
5.  Pour half of mixture over potatoes.
6.  Layer remaining potatoes in dish.  Pour remaining mixture evenly over potatoes.
7.  Sprinkle top liberally with paprika.
8.  Cover.  Bake for 2 hours or until tender.

These will be very tender after 2 hours.

*If you would like cheesy "au gratin" potatoes you may melt shredded cheddar or velveta in with the mixture after it has thickened.  A cup to 1 1/2 cups should make it cheesy.

Enjoy!

Wow, I bet that's awesome! My neighbor gave me same potato salad but it had so many eggs in it that I can't eat it

Mayo? I was expecting a bechemel sauce.

Dang, I lose the recipe guessing game.

Tracy it is a basic white sauce [bechamel] but with chicken stock instead of milk. And leave out the mayo if you want to "win" the game. It's only two tablespoons. I honestly don't think it will be missed.

Huh - I may just try this recipe - it's not the standard milky version and perhaps I'll like it!

Just when I thought I loved her most. She posts a scalloped recipe. My love has increased for her 10-fold.

I fail making scalloped potatoes every time I make them - even make them just like my Momma (sans onions!) and it seems no matter how long I bake them, the potatoes are always crunchy!

I now put them in the microwave and problem solved, although they don't have the same oven baked taste.

Hope you are resting up today after your weekend! Hugs!

Oh YUMMY! I was trying so hard to keep my mind OFF of carbs today. THANKS A LOT! Now all I want to do is make a huge batch of your potatoes and eat them all by myself! (I would ahve to add cheese though... cheddar...) :)
