Scarborough Potatoes Notes

This is a modification of the standard Scalloped/AuGratin potatoes with sharper, British cheeses and four herbs that should be obvious to any Simon and Garfunkel fan!

  • 4 russet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 baseball-sized onion, diced
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 2 cups packed Gloucester Stilton cheese crumbles
Serves / Yields

6-8 servings

Preparation Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. Mix the Potato slices and diced onion together and place into a butter greased 3 quart casserole dish
  3. In a 1.5 quart saucepan, melt the 3 Tablespoons of Unsalted Butter over HIGH heat and then slowly mix in the 3 Tablespoons of flour, mixing constantly
  4. Once the flour and butter are mixed, slowly add the 2 cups of Milk and heat to thicken, continuing to rapidly stir to prevent burning.
  5. Mix in the Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme
  6. Add the cheese crumbles and reduce heat to simmer. Mix until the cheese crumbles have melted into the sauce
  7. Pour cheese sauce over the potatoes and onion in the casserole dish

Helpful Hints

Gloucester Stilton Cheese should be easily found in any decent grocery store. It is basically layers of yellow-orange Gloucester and the whiter Stilton
