There are many ways to make delicious scalloped potatoes in the Caribbean, in my case I like keeping things simple. Basically you layer thin slices of potatoes with any number of extras like cheese, parsley, onions – then add some milk or cream and bake.
Recommend: If you need a faster cooking time, Joy of Cooking recommends parboiling the potatoes first for a few minutes.
Use a shallow casserole dish – you don’t want is crispy browned on top and not-cooked-enough inside.
- 4-5 Potatoes
- 2 cups milk
- ½ lb. grated cheese
- 1 larger onion sliced
- 1 tablespoon margarine
- salt, pepper
- ¼ lb. flour
Peel, slice and soak potatoes in lemon juice and salt water for 1 minute or so. Dry potato slices well and set aside. Grease casserole dish generously. Then place layer of potatoes, and sprinkle layer with cheese, pepper and a little flour. Place several onion slices on top. Continue this process until all potato slices and other ingredients are finished. Then put a very generous coating of grated cheese on top. Dot with butte, and pour milk into casserole until potatoes are covered. Bake in pre-heated oven at 350F for about 45 minutes or until liquid in absorbed.
