Scalloped Potatoes

With the SuperBowl on today, and my friends putting together our typical Sunday sports dinner, I decided to try a new Scalloped Potatoes recipe that could balance a few of the other calories we will be in taking at the party!

 

Ingredients

  • 5 large potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (I used olive oil mayo- 40 calories a T)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Paprika

Directions

  1. In a greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dish, layer potatoes and onion. (I used the Cuisinart to slice both- can I say AMAZING?!)
  2. In a saucepan, melt the butter; stir in flour until smooth. 
  3. Gradually add broth, mayonnaise, garlic powder, salt and pepper; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thick and bubbly. 
  4. Pour over potatoes. Sprinkle with paprika. 
  5. Cover and bake at 325 degrees F for 2 hours or until tender.
