Spicy Scalloped Potatoes with Wisconsin Cheese

It's the time of year for warm and soothing comfort foods and for some reason I was really craving scalloped potatoes!  I wanted to create a recipe that I would re-use time and time again....and this is the base recipe I came up with!


4-5 cups sliced potatoes: I used a mix of yukon gold, red potatoes, and  

1 yellow onion sliced

2 cups of milk 1% or greater

5 Tablespoons flour

4 Tablespoons butter

2 teaspoons white pepper

2 teaspoons cayenne pepper

salt to taste

12 oz of cheese - I  used a mix of white sharp cheddar and mild orange cheddar that was brought to me by my family in Wisconsin :)


1.  Preheat oven to 350

2.  In a large saucepan add butter and melt.  Once butter is melted add flour and stir on medium heat

3.  Add milk stirring until smooth keeping it at a low boil

4.  Add cayenne pepper and white pepper then add and melt in most of the cheese, saving some for the top

5.  In a greased 8x10 pan add 1/2 of potatoes and onions, cover with 1/2 of the sauce

6.  Add next layer of potatoes and onions, pour rest of sauce on top, add grated cheese and sprinkle with cayenne pepper

7.  Cook in over for about 1 hour uncovered

8.  Serve and enjoy!
