My good friend Patti aka InPatsKitchen gave me a recipe for her "Best Ever Scalloped Potatoes" years ago. At our house rutabaga and parsnips are a favorite. When thinking about the contest this week I thought of the yummy scalloped potatoes and decided to try putting a medley together. The result was well received!

This could easily be made vegan by using vegetable stock and a non dairy margarine. —GiGi26

What You'll Need
  • 2 medium potatoes peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion sliced very thin and rings separated
  • 1 small rutabaga peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 parsnips peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Wondra Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups Boiling Chicken Stock
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Paprika for color
  1. In a well greased 2 quart casserole layer, rutabaga, onion, carrots, onion, parsnips, onion, potato, lightly salt and pepper between each layer. Repeat layering ending with potatoes on top.
  2. Melt butter in a sauce pan over medium heat, stir in flour until well blended. Whisk in stock and stir constantly until the mixture is boiling and thickens.

  4. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 90 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and the top is golden brown.
