Today's recipe I got from Jacqueline, the Artistic Farmer. I was preparing for a holiday party with my bookish gals and I was in charged of bringing some potatoes. I've been wanting to use my slow cooker to make my potatoes, so I made some scalloped potatoes, or as the recipe is called
Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes for the Crock-Pot.
Recipe: I was making the potatoes for about 12-15 people, so I made a large batch. I doubled all my ingredients but the recipes is the original with all the original measurements.
|This is the time where I took the most time prepping. Cutting up the potatoes and peeling them|
|To be honest, the need for the onions worried me because I didn't want for the potatoes to taste weird. So I was very light on the onions.|
|My favorite part, the CHEESE!|
|The flour clumped up so I had to spend an extra 5-8 minutes after I added the milk to make sure everything mixed well. So my recommendation is to add the milk and flour together to avoid the flour to clump.|
|I prepared this the night before the event so this is how it looked when I put it in the refrigerator.|
|The next morning, time to start cooking it.|
|My plate, which included the potatoes, mac and cheese, green salad, crispy and grilled chicken.|
Success! While peeling and cutting the potatoes were time consuming, I would definitely do it again. The potatoes were soft and so cheesy but it didn't feel like it was drench in cheese thanks to the sauce.
I hope you all have a good day!
