How to Make Smothered Potatoes
Smothered Potatoes Recipe. Smothered Potatoes or also known as Scalloped Potatoes are easy and really delicious.
I love the taste of the sour cream sauce.
This is a baked casserole with white potatoes, milk, sour cream, cheese and green onions.
We like it with steak or grilled pork tenderloins.
Ingredients for the Smothered Potatoes Recipe
8 medium size white potatoes

Cooking Directions for the Smothered Potatoes Recipe
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Peel potatoes and slice in half. Begin to slice in 1/4 inch slices. Potato slices should look like thin half moons. Place in a large bowl of cold water and set aside.
To make the white sauce, melt butter and whisk in flour.
Slowly add milk and stir constantly for 8 minutes.
Stir in the sour cream and blend until smooth.
Turn off the heat and toss in 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese.
Sprinkle in a dash of Tony’s Creole Seasoning (salt and pepper will do if no Tony’s available).
Stir in 1 cup chopped green onions.
Spray a deep casserole dish with canola oil spray.
Drain the potatoes in a colander.
Pour half of the potatoes in the casserole dish.
Pour half of the sour cream white sauce over the potatoes and spread evenly over the potatoes.
Repeat with remaining potatoes and sauce.
Place on a baking sheet and add casserole cover or foil.
Bake covered for 30 minutes.
Then, bake uncovered for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
Add additional cheese and green onions if desired.
