I have a love that runs deep for potatoes and I'm not ashamed to admit it. There are so many tasty varieties and ways to enjoy this versatile vegetable. I would like to share with you one of my most favorite recipes for Scalloped Potatoes.
I love that the ingredients are simple and even though this recipe takes just over an hour to complete, it is so worth it in the end. Definitely set aside time to prepare the potatoes. I purchased this slicer below, which comes with many attachments and I'm very happy with it.

This device saves a lot of time and double that in effort in order to get them sliced just right. I usually cut them at a "2" setting on this, which is the middle setting for thickness.
You will find the recipe below and let me know what you think. You can accompany with recipe with cooked ham or bacon to make a meal out of it. Alternatively, with smaller portions you can have this be 1 out of 2 sides, the other side being a green vegetable of your choosing and a hearty meat like steak or chicken. I made mine with leftover ham and it was so good!
