Scalloped Potatoes is a perfect side dish to enhance any meal, whether it be a holiday dinner alongside a turkey or ham, to around the family table in the middle of the week. Potatoes, onions, chives and a creamy white bechamel sauce, layered and baked until golden brown. Once you learn this basic technique, you can add your own variations of ingredients and make it yours. Additions like bacon and ham can spice it up. The recipe is included below and links to items to help you make our first batch of scalloped potatoes, and to get some new kitchen gadgets.

Scalloped Potatoes Recipe
————————–
Equipment:
9 x 13 baking pan
Mandolin
Cutting board
Chef knife
Sauce pan
Whisk
Ladle
Aluminum Foil

Ingredients:
2 1/2 – 3 lbs. potatoes (You can peel if desired, though it’s not necessary for a thinner skinned potato. You can use any potato you like – white, Yukon gold, Eastern)
1 large onion
Chives (1 pack)
2 sticks butter (salted or unsalted) plus 2 tablespoons for pan
16 tablespoons flour
1/2 gallon whole milk
1 tsp grated nutmeg
Salt & Pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Grease the baking dish with the 2 tablespoons of butter.

Prepare the vegetables:
Set the mandolin in between 1/8 and 1/4 inch and slice the potatoes.
Using a chef knife, slice the onion and chop the chives

In the sauce pan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the flour and stir with the whisk until combined. Cook for 30 seconds to a minute to cook off the raw flour taste. Slowly add the milk, stirring constantly. (Note: You may not need the entire 1/2 gallon)
Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Continue to stir until thickened and velvety. If it gets too thick, add more milk until the desired consistency. Turn off the heat when desired thickness is reached.

In the baking pan, place a layer of potatoes, then onions, chives and some of the sauce. Add a pinch of salt and healthy grinding of pepper. Repeat until dish is full with the final layer being the sauce and a sprinkling of chives if any are left over.

Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 30 minutes or until top is golden. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.

This boldly flavored twist on French onion soup lets the onion come through loud and strong. Rather than the cheese being on top of the soup, blue cheese is melted into the soup. Blue cheese or Gorgonzola works well for this as it is not overpowering and melts in the soup to give it a velvety smooth texture. Served in a pumpkin or acorn squash, the soup picks up the flavor of its serving vessel. We love to serve this in the fall and Halloween and call it “swamp water”.

Stuffed Peppers is a classic family favorite. It is an easy meal you can prep ahead of time, cook ahead of time or freeze. Stuff the peppers with almost any flavor you like and it is the perfect vessel for leftovers. Add a salad and some crusty bread and you have a hearty meal.

In this recipe, we are stuffing multi-color peppers with Spanish rice – a combination of ground beef, onion, garlic, peppers, jalapeno, diced tomatoes and rice.

A taste of summer, stuffed cherry tomatoes make a great first course or a bright, fresh addition to a buffet. Try filling bite-sized cherry tomatoes with a mixture of savory fillings. In this recipe, we make a quick tuna salad to stuff in them. Think of them as tasty tomato poppers!

Did you know that cherry tomatoes come in red, yellow, green and even black?

Every family has their own Barbecue Sauce, from simple to complex, some sweet, some tangy and some hot and spicy. But everyone needs a basic sauce to start from to develop their own. Peter’s mother in the 1950’s, created a simple and inexpensive barbecue sauce that has become a staple and it all starts with tomato soup. The sauce is a great canvas to add other ingredients to make it your own.

In today’s show we are camping with our friends from CanvasCampers and making barbecue chicken for the potluck dinner all covered with this sauce

Stuffed Mini Peppers are a delicious appetizer that’s like a healthier and less spicy version of a jalapeno popper with plenty of both crunch and cream. It’s crazy how delicious these mini stuffed peppers are because they’re quite simple. Want a hot appetizer, then just a quick broil in the oven takes them to a new level.

This ridiculously easy 6-Ingredient Mini Stuffed Peppers Recipe will wow your party guests, while keeping you at ease. It’s sure to be your new go-to appetizer recipe.

A taste of the tropics, this pineapple based sweet and sour sauce on pork chops is an old family favorite. Great on pork loins, poultry and seafood, it can be made sweeter or more sour. Add some chili’s to give it a new, modern twist. Always a hit, especially with kids, this will be the start of your next family dinner!
