Comfort Foods

I have been a little behind on posting to this blog. It's that time of year when everyone loves comfort foods. Here is a great recipe that my mother-n-law taught me to make. My dad always loved it when I created this recipe.

Scrumptious Scalloped Potatoes
5-6 medium sized potatoes
¾ stick of butter
¾ can of evaporated milk
pepper (fresh ground pepper is best)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice potatoes “scallop style” and wash thoroughly. Spray 2 quart baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Place potatoes in baking dish. Add milk and salt and pepper to taste. Slice butter in several pieces and place on top of potatoes. Bake in oven for approximately 30-40 minutes. Stir every 15 minutes to distribute butter and seasoning. A brown crust will form on potatoes when done. Do not over bake or potatoes will dry out.

In loving memory of our dad who loved this recipe and Dell’s mother-n-law Mildred who was so generous to share it with her. May peace be with both of you!
