Try as I might, I can never follow a recipe exactly. Here's what I came up with when I made a family friend's scalloped potatoes recipe in my own kitchen. These potatoes are so good—you'll just keep going back for more. —Susan Simons, Eatonville, Washington

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded sharp white cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded sharp yellow cheddar cheese
  • 6 cups thinly sliced peeled Yukon Gold potatoes (about 2 pounds)
  • 2 small onions, finely chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large saucepan, heat butter over medium heat. Stir in flour, salt, mustard and pepper until blended; cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned. Gradually whisk in cream. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine cheeses. Layer a third of the potatoes, a third of the onions and 3/4 cup cheese mixture in a greased 3-qt. baking dish. Repeat layers twice. Pour sauce over top; sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  3. Bake, covered, 45 minutes. Uncover; bake 25-30 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender and top is lightly browned.
