Dairy Free Scalloped Potato recipe

jujuthomas Dec 27, 2012 12:06 PM

My brother and sister in law made a terrific scalloped potato dish for Christmas dinner this past weekend. It made me realize how much I miss scalloped potatoes... does anyone have a tried and true recipe using alternative cheeses?

      Here you go, it's pretty tasty, although there is no cheese at all involved. I'm sure you could easily add cheese alternatives though. I got this recipe from my aunt, so I don't have the source of it:

      5 large potatoes (sliced thin)
      3/4 c chopped onion
      3 T butter (oye i guess there is dairy :-P)
      1/4 c flour
      1 3/4 c chicken broth
      2 T mayonnaise
      3/4 tsp salt
      1/8 tsp pepper

      Preheat oven to 325.

      Grease 2 1/2 qt casserole dish. Layer the potatoes and onion. In sauce pan, melt butter, stir in flour and stir until smooth. Gradually add broth, mayo, salt and pepper. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thick and bubbly. Pour over potatoes and sprinkle with paprika. Cover and bake at 325 for 2 hours or until tender.

          That butter can be replaced with a dairy free product.
