Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

Homemade Scalloped Potato

Hi there!

Here at Lazuli Farms, we have the most delicious boneless hams made from our farm-raised pigs.  And when supper calls for ham, there's no better way to eat it than to pair it with homemade SCALLOPED POTATOES!

Our homemade scalloped potatoes are a favorite of mine for it's flavour and because it uses both homemade broth/stock and our homemade lard (which we create from our animals).  But don't worry if you don't have these items on hand!  You can substitute butter for the lard and use store bought broth if you don't have homemade versions.

Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup lard or butter 
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 cups broth (chicken, pork, or beef)
  • 4 cups milk
  • salt & pepper
  • 5 to 6 lbs potatoes, sliced thinly

Instructions:

Melt lard or butter over medium heat in a large saucepan.  Once melted, add onions and cook until soft, 3 to 5 minutes.  Add garlic and cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes.  Add flour and stir in completely.  Slowly add broth in small additions, stirring after each addition.  Take your time with this step, as the mixture can get lumpy if not added slowly.  Add in the milk in small additions as well.  Thicken over low to medium heat until thickened, approximately 10 to 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan.  Add one third of the potatoes to the pan, spreading them out in an even layer.  Sprinkle with salt & pepper.  Pour one third of sauce over the potato slices.  Continue to layer the dish, finishing with a layer of sauce.

Cover and bake for 1 hour.  Uncover and bake for an additional 30 to 45 minutes until potatoes are completely cooked through and top is browned.  Do not be tempted to stir the scalloped potatoes!

Let rest for 15 minutes before serving.

Enjoy!
