Scalloped Potatoes

I always love this side dish, very simple recipe for me, i served with BBQ steak (Now that my hubby got a new BBQ, he will make BBQ every 2nd day, hihihi...), this photo taken at night time, i wouldn't try to take a pic with my pocket camera, but i thought I'll try my new gadget (not bad for beginners isn't it?), with limited skill and lighting, next time i hope will be better, it still part of my learning and practice " practice makes perfect".
And that's why i wasn't post any food last week, I was busy experimenting with my new camera, and i don't want to post my photo if the result's disappointing. Anyway this recipe i took from Super Food Ideas - June 2004 , Page 52.

Scalloped Potatoes


(serves 4)
  • 20g butter
  • 1 onion, halved, thinly sliced
  • 1kg Desiree potatoes
  • 300ml carton pouring cream (see variation)
  • pinch of ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a 6cm deep, 15cm x 24cm (base) ovenproof dish.
  2. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onion. Cook for 4 minutes or until soft. Remove from heat. Set aside. Slice potatoes into 5mm-thick rounds. Pour cream into a jug. Add nutmeg, and salt and pepper. Whisk with a fork to combine.
  3. Arrange a layer of potatoes over base of prepared dish. Top with a layer of onion. Drizzle with a little cream mixture. Repeat layers until all ingredients have been used.
  4. Cover dish tightly with foil. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until potatoes are just tender. Remove foil. Cook for a further 30 minutes or until top is golden.
