scalloped potatoes

One of our favorite comfort foods. This recipe is really pretty easy and you can use a wide variety of our savory or spicy olive oils to flavor the recipe. If you have a mandoline slicer for the taters, it makes this recipe extremely easy, quick and visually appealing. 

Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp. Fresh Harvest Butter Olive Oil
    (You can also use Extra Virgin, Tuscan Herb, Garlic, etc.)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (1/3 cup)
  • 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 ½ cups whole milk (use Almond milk for vegan option)

Heat oven to 350°F.

Grease 2-quart casserole with cooking spray or additional Butter Olive Oil.

In 2-quart saucepan, add 3 tablespoons of the butter olive oil and cook onions on medium heat about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender.

Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly; remove from heat. Stir in milk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute.
