Ingredients

3-4 medium sized potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
3 cups milk
4 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp chopped onion (more or less if you like onion)
2 Tbsp flour
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt (i omitted due to my salt hatred)
grated cheese for topping if desired


Melt butter in microwave in large microwave safe bowl.


Mix in flour, salt, and pepper


Slowly add milk to mixture


Heat in microwave for 9 minutes, stirring every 3 minutes


While butter/milk mixture is cooking, place a layer of sliced potatoes on the bottom of a glass baking dish, then a layer of onion.


Once sauce has finished heating, pour a layer over potatoes/onions


Repeat layering until all ingredients are used


Pop back into the microwave for 17-19 minutes, slightly stirring every 9 minutes or so (you will want to watch it because it tends to bubble over if not stirred!)Depending on how thin/thick you sliced your potatoes, they might need more cooking time.


CAREFULLY remove baking dish from microwave...it WILL be hot


Sprinkle with shredded cheese if you desire


Let sit for a good 5-10 minutes so the sauce can "set"


Serve and enjoy!

Notes

I love scalloped potatoes but hate eating them from a box because they're WAY too salty for me and it grosses me out. My mother-in-law gave me a "microwave cookbook" and I decided to be brave and try a recipe last night.. I was skeptical because I never think of the microwave as good for anything other than reheating leftovers! But these were actually good! I'll be making them again for sure!
