MICROWAVE SCALLOPED POTATOES
Microwave Scalloped Potatoes
- 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!
