Easy Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

This recipe is a family favorite and something I’ve tweaked a lot over the years until it got to its current point of us fighting over the last tiny portion. Then I knew I had a winner! It is the perfect potato side dish for Easter or Passover (or Eastover) or any old Tuesday night. I use my food processor slicing blade for uniformity, and I scrub but don’t peel my potatoes. We had them tonight with filet mignon, caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms. If there is a more satisfying meal on earth than that, I don’t want to know about it.

Easy Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes, serves 4 generous portions or 6 smaller portions

1/2 medium onion, chopped

2 Tablespoons butter

2 Tablespoons flour

1 1/4 cup whole milk

1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

1/4 teaspoon salt and ground pepper
