postheadericon Zach’s Easy Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Oh these are just too good!  Sure you can just buy a box and all the chemicals that go into keeping it “fresh” but why would you do that when this recipe is so darn good and one which your family and friends will love.  Don’t be surprised to hear “Can you please, please….ppplllleeeeaaassseee make Zach’s easy, cheesy scalloped pototatoes!”

This recipe is Zach’s and he is an awesome cook.  Watch for more step by step instructions on more of his easy meals.  The picture includes the complete dinner he made:  Corn on the cob, scalloped potatoes and his own peppered and bacon’d chicken breast!

What you need:

6 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced very thin (Careful with that knife!)

2 tbsp (30 mL) flour

1 tsp (5 mL) salt

1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper

1 1/2 cups (375 mL) grated cheddar or swiss or combination

2 tbsp (30 mL) butter or margarine

2 1/2 cups (625 mL) milk

Optional:  Zach adds another cup of shredded cheese to the very top for extra cheesiness.  Not that he needs it!


9 x 13 inch (22 x 33 cm) baking dish


Cutting board


Measuring cups/spoons

Tin foil

How to make it:

  • Preheat your oven to 375 F (190 C)
  • Grease the pan up well.  Use either butter, margarine, oil or spray to prevent sticking.
  • Cut the potatoes into thin slices and spread about 1/3 on the bottom of the pan.
  • Mix the flour, salt and pepper into a small bowl.  Sprinkle about half of the flour, salt and pepper mixture over the first layer.  Top with cheese.
  • Repeat again for second layer.
  • Add final 1/3 of potatoes to the top layer evenly and put a little butter all over it on top.
  • Optional:  Add extra grated cheese if desired
  • Pour the milk over the potato mixture.
  • Cover with tin foil and bake for about 30 minutes and then remove tin foil to cook another 30-40 minutes until the potatoes feel soft when you poke them with a knife in the middle and the top has browned nicely.

Makes: 8 – 10 servings
