Tasty Scallopped Potatoes Goodness !

Recommended Posts

Ok ..So traditionally we always get a ham and have scalloped with ham for Easter dinner .So we decided not to change tradition and try to make it gluten free and IT WAS AWESOME ! The only thing I did was substitute Bobs Redmill all purpose flour instead of regular flour when I made my bechamel sauce and the rest was the same ! This was one of those meals that make you feel like you havent given everything up and makes you feel a little more normal that you might have felt while making other things like pizza or pasta . Ahhh ..I have to say today was a GOOOOOD DAY ! :D

Sauce

1 cube of margarine or butter

1/2 cup Bobs red mill all purpose flour

salt, pepper,garlic pepper to taste

Milk

Melt the butter and add seasoning and the with a wisk add in the flour ...It turns into kind of a paste in the pot ...Keep stiring it and moving it around until it breaks apart and is in small pieces in the bottom of the pan . After that you start adding milk ...I add about 4 cups to start and then as it thickens up I keep adding a cup at a time until it stays the consistency I like it .Then in a glass baking dish layer sliced potatoes and ham and alternate those until you the dish is full .Then slowly pour the sauce over the top until it fills all the spaces in the dish ...If you like the sauce really think you may have to use a knife to move the potatoes around to get the sauce all the way thru ...I personally make it a little soupier as when it cooks it will evaporate and thicken right up and it just pours so nicely into the dish and fills all the gaps!

Then I put it in the microwave for 20-30 minutes and until the potatoes are fork tender and then throw them under the broiler to brown them up nicely ...If you prefer to oven cook them just preheat to 375 and cook for about an hour uncovering for the last 15 minutes to get them nice and brown !

ENJOY !!
