My husband was raised in Wyoming and is very much a meat and potatoes guy. I still remember when we were first dating and I asked him what he wanted for his birthday dinner. He asked for ham and scalloped potatoes. Imagine his surprise when I told him I had no idea how to make scalloped potatoes!
Over the years I have perfected my scalloped potatoes recipe. I learned it is best to keep it simple and the most important direction is to thinly slice the potatoes. Seriously ~ so thin you can see something held on the other side of the slice. This step used to take me forever and was a grueling task. Then I got a mandolin slicer and now it is so easy. I would highly recommend getting one!
After my husband started watching the Dr. Oz Show he told me he wanted me to start sneaking fiber into his diet but not to tell him or he knew he would think stuff tasted different even if it didn’t. I have been using Arbonne fiber powder in most of his meals for almost a year now and he has no idea!
- 4-6 large potatoes
- 2-3 cups milk
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 2 scoops Arbonne or other fiber powder (shhh, don't tell)
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 375
- Thinly slice potatoes and place in casserole dish.
- Liberally salt and pepper potatoes. Sprinkle with fiber powder and toss.
- Pour milk over so that it comes just below the top of the potatoes.
- Slice butter and place on top of potatoes.
- Bake for approximately 1 hour until cooked through and golden brown.
