From Scratch Creamy Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

From Scratch Creamy Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

First of all, let's talk about the fact that it's Friday! To top it off, it is 3-day Friday, and let's face it, it doesn't get much better than that. In honor of this wonderful 3 day weekend, I decided that I would let you in on a top secret recipe for the most amazing homemade scalloped potatoes ever.  Seriously guys, these potatoes are like crack in the form of food. They are creamy and cheesy and my hubs is in love with them (and I can pretty much bet yours will be too)!

Side note---these potatoes take about 90 minutes to cook so make sure you have plenty of time!! They are definitely worth it so don't let the time scare you away! Another side note is that we bought the BIGGEST potatoes known to mankind, so that is why I only used 2 for the recipe...seriously, they were as big as my head.

3. While butter is melting, peel potatoes and slice them SUPER thin (almost as thin as a potato chip, about 1/8 inch)

4. Add milk & Worcestershire sauce to melted butter & cook for about 5 minutes (be careful not to scald the milk)

5. Add 2 cups of shredded cheese to butter/milk mixture and cook until thick, about 5 minutes
