So I have been thinking that these sounded amazing ever since my neighbor mentioned they were having scalloped potatoes for dinner.  And this recipe is one that I found years ago and have sworn to ever since – I have tweaked it a little – but I have yet to find a recipe that I completely follow other than for baked goods….and even then I tend to play with them.  These are a great quick night dinner all in their own paired with the Dinner Rolls that were posted the other day.  Every time I make these there are never any leftovers – we hope you enjoy them as much as we do!!!

Scalloped Potatoes

  • 2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes
  • 1 tsp butter
  • Minced Garlic ( about a tablespoon) 
  • 2 cups Whole Milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt & pepper
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg ( and this is not a skip this ingredient either) 
  • 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2  cup sharp cheese – shredded
  • 1 Julienne sliced onion
  • cubed ham 

Preheat oven to 400 – spray a baking dish.  Peel potatoes and slice to around a 1/8 inch thick.  In a large saucepan melt 1 tsp butter,add garlic, milk, salt,pepper, Italian seasoning, onion,  and nutmeg.  Bring to a simmer – add potatoes. The milk may not cover them – that is fine.  Cook 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender – add cheese and ham.  Pour into baking dish – dot with butter.  Bake until potatoes are tender and top is a golden brown.  About 25 to 30 minutes.   Let sit for roughly 10 minutes and they thicken up quite nicely.
