- Butter, for greasing
- 4-5 large misshapen or leftover potatoes
- Salt, to taste
- Pepper, to taste
- 4-6 tablespoons of butter, cut into small pieces
- 1 ½ cups of milk


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a baking dish with butter to prevent the potatoes from sticking.

2. Choose large misshapen or leftover potatoes that you wouldn't want to use for boiling or baking. Peel the potatoes and slice them thinly.

3. Spread a layer of sliced potatoes, approximately an inch thick, on the bottom of the greased baking dish.

4. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste over the potato layer.

5. Dot the layer of potatoes with small pieces of butter, approximately half a teaspoon for each layer. Distribute them evenly across the layer.

6. Repeat Steps 3-5 to create additional layers of potatoes, salt, pepper, and butter until the baking dish is full. It's okay if the layers are uneven.

7. Once all the layers are complete, pour the milk over the potatoes. The milk should cover the potatoes entirely.

8. Carefully place the baking dish in the preheated oven and cook for approximately one hour until the top is golden brown and the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.

9. Once cooked, remove the scalloped potatoes from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.

Serve the Scalloped Potatoes as a delicious side dish with roasted chicken, grilled steak, or enjoy them as a main course with a fresh green salad.
