Scalloped Potatoes--Easter Special!

Since it is Easter week, I thought I would include my recipe for Scalloped Potatoes.  My family likes them with anything, but they seem to go with Easter ham especially well.   I always use real potatoes...not the boxed variety. They may seem intimidating to make, perhaps by looking at them, or even the name, but nothing could be further from the truth. They are quite easy and very much worth the effort. Enjoy!!
Please keep in mind when making these, that this is a dish that is very much individualized. For instance, I am giving you the recipe for a serving of six. I AT LEAST double that. Also, you can trade in your milk for heavy cream...And, the cheese you use is purely your own taste as well. My family just happens to like Velveeta as their cheese sauce of choice on scalloped potatoes!

Serves 6

6 cups peeled potatoes, sliced, cubed, diced whatever you prefer.
(Just remember the bigger your chunks, the longer it takes to cook.)
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour

1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt

1 dash cayenne pepper (We are liberal with this. You might not want it at all!)

1/2 box (or more!) Velveeta cheese--cubed.
1/2 cup grated cheese to sprinkle on top.

In a small sauce pan, melt butter and blend in flour
Add all of cold milk, stirring with a whisk

Season with salt and cayenne

Cook sauce on low until smooth and boiling, stirring occasionally with a whisk

Reduce heat. Make sure you do not let your white sauce burn!

Place your sliced potatoes in a greased casserole dish.
You might want to salt, pepper, garlic salt and/or onion salt them lightly.
Pour the white sauce over the top.
Take your cubed Velveeta and sprinkle it over the entire potato dish.
Cover with foil.
Bake for about 35-40 minutes covered at 350°.
Sprinkle your cheddar cheese over the top
and finish baking uncovered....probably another 25-30 minutes.
Put a fork or knife into the potatoes to check for "doneness".
Check in several places!!
