Creamy Scalloped Potatoes

Scallop Potatoes 051 PS Welcome to San Pasqual’s Kitchen! I’m glad you’re here. Today I wanted something to go with my leftover beef tenderloin from Christmas, but I didn’t want to go to the store and with just a few things left in the pantry, my options were few. I finally decided on something I had often as a child but had never made myself, scalloped potatoes.Scallop Potatoes 026 PS When I told my husband, Joe, what I had decided to make he didn’t yawn. Not with his mouth anyways, but something in his eyes yawned. Humph. Challenge accepted.Scallop Potatoes 045 PS This creamy, humble, comforting side dish is my adaptation of Mark Bittman’s recipe in the How To Cook Everything cookbook.Scallop Potatoes 001 PS Ingredients
