Scalloped Potatoes Texas Style

My Mamaw used to make scalloped potatoes for breakfast all the time when we’d vist her in New Boston, TX. Granted I hopped them up up a bit with bacon and jalapenos. While cooking we’re looking for crispy brown crust forming on the potatoes.

  • We are looking for a lot of browning or a little depending on your taste.
