Small Recipes...Scalloped Potatoes for 1 to 4

 We have reviewed this cookbook, Betty Crocker’s Dinner for Two, and have some recipes that we make from it already posted. Now that I am cooking for just one, I find I use it more than I had and today tried the recipe for scalloped potatoes. I am Celiac and this recipe calls for no flour to thicken it. 
 This is from the section If you have company, Which is why there are four servings.
 It was easy to make for just one, I used one medium baker and half of the milk and butter called for. Worked out just fine though next time I will lower the temperature to 325° and in my countertop oven they were done in 40 minutes. Maybe because it was not as large a pan they baked faster. If you make them I would start with 40 minutes and add more cooking time if you need to. And if you are cooking for a smaller family I still recommend this book for the tips and lists as well as the recipes. I did sprinkle some nutmeg along with the salt and pepper because I like that flavor with my scalloped potatoes. Also omitted the onion.

Scalloped potatoes
4 servings
3 to 4 cups of thinly sliced potatoes
salt and pepper (nutmeg optional)
1 Tbsp. minced onion
2 to 4 tbsp. butter
1 ¼ cups of milk heated
Heat oven to 325° for glass or 350° for metal 
 Peel and slice potatoes
Arrange potatoes in layers in a greased 1 ½ quart baking dish. Sprinkle each layer with salt, pepper, nutmeg if using and onion.
Dot with butter. 
Pour hot milk over top. Bake uncovered about 49 to 69 minutes until tender. 
If browning too fast cover lightly with foil.
Moisten leftovers with milk if you reheat.

  1. Potatoes are very important in our household. Sometimes we get tired of a big casserole of a recipe.

    1. This was quite good and a nice size. I don't think scalloped potatoes reheat as well and I get tired of a larger casserole also.

  2. That looks delicious!


  3. Thanks for all the comments, they are easy to make as well as good which is even better.
