Cheesy scalloped potatoes

These cheesy scalloped potatoes are simple to make and taste amazing. Scroll down for the printable scalloped potatoes recipe.

Preheat the oven to 350Β°F and butter your pan. Then line half of the potatoes on the bottom of the pan.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and then add garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Whisk in flour, salt, and pepper, and cook for another minute.
Next, slowly whisk in milk until smooth. Bring to a light simmer (to thicken) and then stir in 3/4 cup cheese until melted. Remove from heat.
Pour half of the sauce over the potatoes and then sprinkle cheese over top (about 1/2 cup). Then line the remaining potatoes on top and add the remaining sauce and cheese.
Bake scalloped potatoes for 50-60 minutes (uncovered) until they are fork-tender and golden on top.
I LOVE adding lots of cheese to my scalloped potatoes but you can certainly cut down on the cheese if you prefer. I wouldn’t cut the cheese from the sauce, but you could cut it by adding as much to the top. But since it’s the holidays, you might as well go all out. πŸ™‚
