Waste or mistakes never happen in a farm kitchen.....only future animal or plant food.

Scalloped Potatoes

Today was a dismal and soggy day...over 9 inches of rain!  The creek was as full as it could be without going over its banks.  I craved hot, slow cooked, comfort food.  Here's what I chose to make:

Butter and coconut oil

I sliced 3 medium potatoes in the food processor, then grated about 8 oz of  Munster and a little Parmesan type hard cheese.  After a heavy coating of the sides and bottom of the baking dish with coconut oil, I layered the mix of potatoes and cheese.  I ground some salt and pepper over the top, added about 1 cup of milk (what was left in the jar) and dotted with thin slices of butter, about 1-2 TBS.  I baked it in my toaster oven at 300* for an hour.  It sat for 15 minutes before our digging in.

This would be a good use for older or clabbered raw milk.

We didn't have any leftovers.
