Scalloped Potatoes

Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes

This is a very large recipe but the proportions are not all that important.

12 medium potatoes, thinly sliced

1 or 2 medium onions, thinly sliced

1 or 2 cloves minced garlic (optional)

Pre-cook the potatoes and onions in water for about 5 minutes and then drain and place in slow cooker.

Top with roux made as follows:

¼ cup butter

¼ cup flour

2 cups milk

Melt butter and add flour. Stir until well mixed. Then add milk. Cook on low heat stirring often until it is thick. Add about 1 cup of cheese. I used a mixture of cheddar, mozzarella and feta. Stir well and pour over the potatoes. If it doesn’t cover the potatoes, add some plain milk to top it up. Sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese.

Cook for about 4 hours on medium or low.

I made a huge pot of these and they disappeared in minutes.
