The Ultimate Scalloped Potatoes

So cold today here in my corner of the world that I wanted to knit little sweaters for the icicles.

Craving something home-y and thumbed through the Fannie Farmer Cookbook for this little gem–the Ultimate Scalloped Potatoes. (Editor’s note: I renamed them “Ultimate” because of one ingredient change. You’ll agree with me.)



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C).
  2. Butter a 1 1/2 quart casserole.
  3. Cover the bottom of the casserole with a single layer of potatoes, then a thin layer of Brie.
  4. Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, flour and a few dots of butter.
  5. Repeat until all of the potato slices are used.
  6. Pour milk over the potato slices until the top is almost covered.
  7. Dot with the remaining butter
  8. Bake for 1 hour or until the potatoes are soft.
  9. The Brie on the top layer will crisp nicely along with the potato slices–looks very pretty.
