Creamy and Crispy Scalloped Potatoes
It was pretty bland so we added cheese on top. I was short a potato so I added a sweet potato, without which the dish would have been REALLY bland. The dish is really not attractive to look at if you follow the directions since the sprinkled flour remains where it landed in small white clumps. The onion also remains semi-raw so there is no depth of flavor. The dish lacked the creamy sauce I was expecting from the name.
If I were to make it again, this is what I would do:
Instead of layering as directed, use the butter (possibly a little more than directed) to cook the onions and some garlic in a frying pan. When the onions are translucent, add the flour to make a roux. Then add the milk, salt, and paprika and cook until slightly thickened. Pour 1/3 of sauce over each layer, then bake as directed.
