Scalloped Potatoes

This is the first time I've ever made scalloped potatoes, and they were easy and awesome.
I received some organic red potatoes from my CSA and wanted to make something special with them Scalloped potatoes make a beautiful presentation and are creamy and delicious. They were the perfect choice.

This recipe does require that you slice the potatoes very thin.
I was able to slice the potatoes very thin in just minutes using an inexpensive Mandolin Slicer ( kitchen gadget- about $ 15)  that I've had sitting in my closet and have been wanting to try.

 I wish I had started to use it a long time ago; It's the easiest tool I've ever used. I sliced 3 pounds of potatoes in perfect thin rounds in just minutes. I used these thin rounds to line a Pyrex pie pan to make the scalloped potatoes.

If you don't have one of these little slicers, I recommend it highly that you get one.
I bought this one:

Super Slicer Mandoline Slicer - All Purpose 5 in 1 Mandolin Slicer with Free Bonus Waffle Blade

You can easily and quickly slice just about any kind of vegetable into thin consistent slices with it . It is truly a great time saver. Honestly, I don't believe you can achieve the uniformity and thickness/thinness of slicing vegetables without one. It's worth the minimal investment especially if you want to make scalloped potatoes.

Scalloped potatoes make a great gluten free side dish any time of the year.

  4. Hello Judee. I had to click on your link! The picture reminded me of my mother's potatoes growing up. I still remember the blue and white corning ware she baked it in! I love red potatoes and I have been planning to get a mandolin myself. This might be what pushes me to doing just that. Glad I found you on Anything goes link up. Thank you for sharing!
