I love cheese, and I love potatoes, perfect combination! And since I have not had scalloped potatoes in ages, and the fact that I have a 4 pound block of Cheddar cheese in my fridge, I decided to post this. My report is in the comments. And the recipe is modified on my findings.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C, grease a 9x13 baking dish. Or use a non-stick baking pan.
  2. Heat a pot of water, once it is boiling, put in the sliced potatoes, boil for about 5-8 minutes, drain thoroughly. This step is done to ensure your potatoes are fully cooked while baking, this is a head start for them. When you slice the potatoes, keep them uniform in thickness, a mandolin would be a great help in this process.
  3. Mix the corn starch into the milk and set aside.
  4. Layer the bottom the baking dish with potatoes. Cover the potatoes with a layer of cheese, salt and pepper to taste. Repeat the layering process until all of the ingredients are used up. Cheese should be your last layer. Photo shows 3 layers of potatoes and 3 layers of cheese.
  5. Pour the milk mixture over all the potatoes, cover with foil and bake for about 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender, this may take longer than 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 10 to 15 minutes until cheese is bubbly and starting to brown. Completed, and yes, my portion has already been removed, and it was tasty.
Recipe Notes

Potatoes cost about 35 Baht/kilo, making this a very reasonable side dish for up to 8 servings.

Now this is listed as a side dish, but if you add a couple of diced boiled chicken breasts or diced ham to each layer, and pair it with a green vegetable for a side dish, you can turn this into a inexpensive meal.

Adapted from and internet recipe.

  1. I made this last night, the above photos are mine during the process. This turned out excellent! For slight variations, I boiled the potato slices in whey I had left over from making cottage cheese, adds a good flavor. I used probably 4-5 cups of cheese, can never have too much cheese. I baked uncovered the entire time using a counter top oven, the last 20 minutes I turned on the top coil to brown the top. Recipe has been edited to reflect changes.
