Healthy Scalloped Potatoes

Growing up in Minnesota, I became very familiar with many different cheesy potato variations. At every family event and major holiday there is at least four different kinds to choose from. Crockpots all in a row…which one will be the favorite this time? Well, as much as I LOVED cheesy potatoes, my gut did not always enjoy what was in them. In an effort to create healthier versions of Minnesota favorites I came up with healthy scalloped potatoes. 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 4 tablespoons grass-fed butter — we use this kind
  • 4 tablespoons coconut flour — or you can use arrowroot powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups organic whole milk (we use raw, grass-fed milk)
  • 3/4 cup organic sour cream — how to make your own
  • 3 lbs organic potatoes, washed and peeled (peeling is optional)
  • 2 cups of your favorite cheese, shredded (we love Havarti, Gruyere, and Cheddar — all grass-fed, and preferably raw)
  • 8 slices of grass-fed cheddar

Directions: 

  • Using a mandoline, slice the potatoes into thin rounds
  • Layer potatoes in a crockpot
  • In a medium bowl combine coconut flour, salt and pepper and whisk to combine

  • Let simmer over medium heat until it thickens
  • Pour over potatoes in crockpot and give it a little stir to combine
  • Cover crockpot and cook on high for one hour or low for 3 hours
  • Once they are done, you will know this by piercing the potatoes with a fork (you want them to be very tender), cover them with the sliced cheese and place the crockpot lid back on for 10 minutes
  • Once the cheese slices have melted, it’s ready to serve

    This recipe came out at a perfect time. We we are bringing the potatoes to a potluck Easter Brunch and I was concerned about oven space. This is perfect. I imagine that the shredded cheese gets put in at the same time as the onion, flour and sourcream mixture?
