Joanie’s Scalloped Tators

A friend from church gave this to me when I was first married and it has been a hand-down easy favorite! It is so simple to make for 1-however many you need, and is so delicious!!!

  1. Thinly slice 1 medium potato per person. Spray baking dish with Pam or Crisco.
  2. Put 1 layer of potatoes, covering the bottom of the dish and lightly salt and pepper. I don't always peel the potatoes, more vitamins are retained that way.
  3. Lightly cover the potatoes with shredded Colby or Colby Jack cheese.
  4. Thinly slice butter and dot these on the top of the cheese (do not cover the top with butter or it will be greasy. No more than 1-2 tablespoons cut up into small pieces.
  5. Lightly dust the top with flour (like you would a cake pan)
  • Repeat steps 1-4 until you’ve run out of slices or room.
  • On the last layer, top it nicely with cheese, and finish with the butter and dusting of flour. Using 1-2 cups of hot whole milk, pour over layers until milk appears ½ way up on the dish. If you use too much milk, it will be very runny. I usually take a conservative side with this.
  • Sometimes I'll put this in the microwave to cook for 20 minutes if I'm in a hurry. If you do this, please use Plastic Wrap to cover it.
  • Cover with foil and Bake in oven for 40-45 minutes at 350º
