Mamie’s Scalloped Potatoes

Well, it’s that time of year to cozy up to a fire and wrap ourselves around some serious comfort food. One of my favorites is my grandmother Mamie’s Scalloped Potatoes. These are the silkiest, creamiest potatoes I have ever had.


Most recipes you find for scalloped potatoes have lots of cheeses and I often wondered why Mamie’s recipe didn’t have any cheese, but you would swear there was cheese when you taste them. When I started thinking about that I realized it was probably even her mothers recipe and I’m sure cheese was a luxury back then. So, as all amazing home cooks do, they made do with what they could afford and made something delicious. I just love the thought of that.


So, here is a toast to my grandmother and her mother and all before them, for giving us all our favorite family recipes to pass down from generation to generation.

I will try and give you the recipe but there will be no measurements as you can imagine.
