Scalloped Potatoes

Scalloped potatoes is one of my boyfriend's favourite dishes.  He's a potato fiend, like any other normal human being.  About a year ago we had a fat feast & made every kind of potato dish we could possibly think to make.  It made me obsessed with finding healthy potato recipes.

Recipe is from Eating Well
Yields 8 servings
213 calories per serving

2 lbs potatoes, cut into 1/4 in thick slices
3 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp black pepper
2.5 c skim milk
1/2 c shredded parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 425.

Toss potatoes in a large bowl with 1 tbsp olive oil.
Spread potatoes across 2 baking sheets & roast for 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp olive in a large pan over medium heat.
Add onion & cook, stirring frequently until soft & golden brown, 5- 8 minutes.
Add flour, salt, & pepper; cook & stir for another minute.
Add milk & continue to stir until sauce bubbles & thickens, about 4 minutes.
Remove from heat & set aside.

When potatoes are done, remove from the oven & preheat broiler.

Place half of the potatoes in a broiler-safe pan & pour half of the sauce over top.
Add the remaining potatoes & the remaining sauce.
Top with the cheese & place in the broiler for 5 minutes.

Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
