Emeril Lagasse's scalloped potatoes are so good that you'll want to serve them as the main dish.


  • 1 teaspoon plus 1/4 cup unsalted butter (1/2 stick)
  • 2 1/2 pounds red potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grounded white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons bleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 pound sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 pound Monterey Jack cheese, grated 2 cups milk
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a 2-quart baking dish with 1 teaspoon of the butter.

    Put the potatoes in a large mixing bowl and add the salt and white pepper. Toss to season evenly. Arrange a layer of potatoes on the bottom of the prepared baking dish and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of the flour. Dot with a tablespoon of the remaining butter, then sprinkle with 1/2 cup of each of the cheeses. Repeat the process until the potatoes, butter, flour and cheeses are used, ending with the cheeses. Pour in the milk.

    Bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and serve hot.
