Grandma’s Recipes

Grandma’s always have the best recipes, no one makes comfort food like Grandma. Scalloped potatoes are one of my favorite comfort foods. I avoid them at gatherings because they are made with flour and that tasty cracker crumble is full of wheat, but no more.

These gluten free scalloped potatoes are so simple to make. Slice the potatoes with a food processor for the quickest way, or you can slice with a knife. The food processor is really fast and makes even slices. I always leave the skin on. For scalloped potatoes, I like the yellow potatoes. The skin is so thin you barely notice it, plus your retaining nutrients.

A simple roux is made using butter, flour and milk. Be sure to season it well. A little bit of nutmeg really brings out the flavor. I used GF Jules flour, but any should do. If your roux seems a little thick just add a bit of milk.

The Cracker Crust

Of course, what really makes these the best is the cracker crumb topping. Schar’s gluten free table crackers are seriously the most addicting thing ever. My four year old eats them for breakfast and we actually order them off Amazon by the case. Another favorite recipe we use them in is Papas a la Huancaina. The uses for them are endless.

For the gluten free scalloped potatoes, I blended the gluten free Schar crackers with a couple of tablespoons of melted butter and a hint of Italian seasoning. The crispy cracker topping is to die for.

Gluten Free Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

These gluten free scalloped potatoes with ham are a perfect use of that leftover Easter ham, of course they can be made without it, but it takes these from side dish to main dish. Speaking of side dishes- this Simple Spring Mix Salad from Foolproof Living will make an excellent side!

    This is the 2nd time I made this for a crowd. I doubled the recipe and put it in a 9 x12 pan plus a bread pan. People raved about and wanted the recipe. I added crushed onion to the roux and that was better than the 1st time I made it without. Lots and lots of flavors going on. Thank you for the recipe!

    This recipe is absolutely wonderful! I haven’t enjoyed this dish in many years and it was a bright spot in the day to serve it for dinner. The addition of nutmeg is wonderful and so is the Italian seasoning in the cracker crust. The recipe is delicious just as written. Thank you!
