Scalloped Potatoes with Caramelized Onions

by: KATHERYN'S KITCHEN

November 12, 2013

(here's the scallop potatoes recipe from a finalist entry in the 2013 Your Best Potato Recipe)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 4 crushed garlic cloves
  • 3 peppercorns
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 large Spanish or yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 large Yukon Gold potatoes (2 to 3 pounds), peeled
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme

Directions

  1. In saucepan, bring cream, gar­lic, pep­per­corns, thyme, and salt to just under boil; reduce heat to low, cover and sim­mer for 15 min­utes... Remove from heat; set aside...
  2. Heat your oven to 300° F.
  3. Mean­while, in skil­let, heat oil over medium-low heat and cook onion, stir­ring often, until light brown, about 45 min­utes... Slice pota­toes as thinly as pos­si­ble... (using a man­do­line if avail­able)
  4. Layer 1/4 of the pota­toes in greased about 8 x 12-inch glass bak­ing or casse­role dish; top with 1/3 of the onion and 1/4 of the cheese... Repeat twice. Top with remain­ing pota­toes... Strain cream mix­ture over pota­toes, shak­ing casse­role to dis­trib­ute evenly... Sprin­kle with remain­ing cheese...
  5. Bake in 300°F oven on a baking sheet (to catch drips) until ten­der and a knife inserted into the dish pierces pota­toes eas­ily, 1 1/2 to 2 hours... (Make-ahead: Let cool, then cover and refrig­er­ate for up to 2 days... Reheat, tented with tin foil, in 375° F oven for 30 minutes)
  6. Tip: For a lighter ver­sion, steep gar­lic, pep­per­corns, thyme, and salt in 2 cups of (500 mL) milk... Then make béchamel sauce: In saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons but­ter over medium-low heat... Add 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour... Cook, stir­ring, for 1 minute... Whisk in strained milk mix­ture, and sim­mer everything for 5 min­utes until slightly thickened... Pour over pota­toes

Guess you can use the bacon grease with the oil to cook the onions, and add the ham towards the end of the onions being cooked, likewise with the bacon, and proceed layering the layers in step #4... 

Sounds really yummy using both... 

Not at the top of my list, but I will have to try my hand making this myself...  Maybe add sausage too!

I have a similar recipe I just add one pound diced uncooked  bacon to it.

Where's the ham in this recipe? You can't have scalloped potatoes without ham.
