Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

I noticed these scalloped potatoes on Pinterest, and they looked so good I put them on my “to do” list. Now my “to do”, or should I say “to make” list is so long, I don’t know which way is up. But I found these while looking through my Pinterest pins, and decided today is the day. Yes, I should be cleaning the house, doing outside work, or any number of other things I have to do. But, I’d rather be cooking. So, I guess the rest can wait for just another day!

I followed the recipe except I added some very thinly sliced onions, I sliced on my Mandoline slicer. They’ve got to be thinly sliced, otherwise they won’t be completely cooked in the hours time. I also added some Vermont Cheddar Cheese Powder to the sauce, which gave it that extra cheesy kick.

These potatoes are a sure bet for anyone that loves them as I do. And the thickening of the sauce takes the guesswork out of whether the sauce will be too thick or too thin. The sauce came out perfect and cheesy.
