Scalloped Potatoes Treasure Hunt

Scalloped Potatoes Treasure Hunt

Make this and add peas, carrots, bits of meats or bits of soft cooked sweet potatoes or butternut squash. Let baby explore the meal and pick out the colorful (and nutritious) bits.

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 to 4 tablespoons mayonnaise (you can use whole milk yogurt if desired)
3/4 teaspoon salt (at your discretion)
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 F degrees
In a greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dish, layer potatoes and onion. (I add a sprinkle of cheddar to each layer too)

In a saucepan, melt the butter; stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add broth, mayonnaise, salt and pepper (we also add garlic and add the spices to suit our taste);
Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thick and bubbly. I find this takes about 15 minutes on medium heat and whisking every few minutes.

Pour mixture over potatoes. Sprinkle with paprika. Cover and bake at 325 degrees F for 2 hours or until tender.
