Please, need your favorite recipe for scalloped potatoes au gratin. For some
reason, this is a hit or miss dish with me, and so, has become one that I
always dread making..wondering "Will it turn out right?" The husband has
agreed that I can adopt a cat I am mad for, if I will make him this dish for a
late supper Monday night. (He works till almost midnight, that gives me a
little extra time to garner recipes) Not that he could have stopped said
feline acquisition, but his blessing makes things so much easier.

Well, you could cheat and use the Betty Crocker mix.

It's funny you should request this recipe now, as I have recently made it for
three weekends in a row! I adore it! Although, I must confess to making up
my own recipe - sort of an adaptation of a regular scalloped potatoes recipe.
I thinly slice up peeled potatoes, and place them in a buttered baking dish.
I then toss them in a bit of flour.. .maybe 3/4 cup? .. and salt and pepper.
(be generous with the salt... this dish needs it!) I then pour milk in the
dish, almost to the top. Then, sprinkle in (lots of) grated cheddar cheese and
mix together. Then, I dot butter or margarine all over the top and bake until
the potatoes are soft and the whole thing is melty and wonderful. About 350 -
400 degree oven.
YUM! I might have to go make some now!
