For every major holiday, my mom was always put in charge of making the scalloped potatoes. Probably because she was the only one that could effectively mimic my grandma’s famous recipe. When I got older, moved out, and had kids of my own, she decided that it was time to pass the torch on to me. No matter how hard I tried, there was just no way that I could get the flavor to taste the same.
Event after event, I walked away disappointed that I couldn’t make the family dish. That was true, until I found this recipe on Spend with Pennies. Okay, so it wasn’t the family recipe, but it was so easy to make, and the flavor was pretty darn close to what I remember.
The first time I delivered these my mom said, “You finally did it!” I just let her go on thinking that. Nobody will ever have to know that I switched things up a bit, and when I pass it on to my daughter, it will be the “new and improved” family scalloped potato recipe.
