These scalloped potatoes are so creamy and delicious.
1 clove garlic, halved
2 cups (8oz) grated Swiss Cheese
1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 cups milk
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon dried pepper flakes, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon salt
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of pepper
1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
*Optional: Freshly chopped parsley to garnish.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Wash, peel and slice the potatoes.
Cover with salted water. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.
As we will be baking the potatoes, we only want to lightly parboil them.
Grease a 2 quart cooking dish that has a lid and rub with the fresh garlic.
Mix together the grated swiss cheese and the flour.
Alternate layers of potato slices and chesse mixture in the prepared baking dish.
Combine the milk, onion flakes, pepper flakes, salt, nutmeg and pepper and pour over the top.
Sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese on top.
Cover with the lid and bake for 45-50 minutes. *If you cooking dish does not have a lid, use tin foil and tightly seal the edges.
Uncover and check the potatoes at about 40 minutes to see if they are soft yet.
Just poke with a fork to see if they are soft. If they are not cooked keep covered and bake a little longer.
Once they are cooked, uncover and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes to lightly brown the cheese. Watch to not burn the cheese, we just want it golden brown.
Garnish with freshly chopped parsley if desired.
