What’s the difference between scalloped potatoes and potatoes Au Gratin? I don’t know. I probably should research it, if anyone knows let me know. You guys will like this. It’s easy. It came from Publix. Do y’all have those? I love how different grocery stores inhabit different regions. Piggly-Wiggly. I LOVE that name. We don’t have those. We have Publix, Winn-Dixie, La Reina, and El Bodegon. The last two are Latin markets. I am one of the few gringos that go there. But that’s fine. They all know me and they’re nice. I was the only person the pregnant cashier shared her baby’s name with. Her man didn’t even know! Isn’t it funny how a total stranger can make you feel so special? She probably told me because she knew thee was no way her hubby would ever know from me. Either way, it’s nice to know her “secret”. The Latin stores have the BEST seasonings, cleaners, and BAKERIES. Trust me. Yummy. If you have a Latin supermarket where you live, go check it out. It’s fun. 🙂
Publix scalloped potatoes:
slice 3 medium potatoes like this:
cover with water and microwave 8-10min or until tender.
Now: take 1 1 ⁄2 cups half and half
and place it in a saucepan over med heat- whisk until it’s warmed through. Add in:
1 c shredded cheese
1⁄2 tsp salt
1⁄2 tsp minced garlic
1⁄2 tsp Dijon mustard
1⁄4 tsp cayenne pepper
stir until cheese melts. Remove from the heat and add the drained,cooked potatoes. Pour into a prepared 2qt baking dish. Top with bread crumbs and 1⁄4 c Parmesan cheese. Bake at 325° for 20-25 min. * I baked mine in the toaster oven- worked fine! 🙂 I also topped mine with extra shredded cheese since I was out of Parmesan, and put parsley flakes on top, too.
