I received my Pinzon Stainless-Steel Mandoline as a gift from my sister for my birthday several years ago. This is probably my favorite gadget for my kitchen (besides my Kitchen Aid Mixer that is). With this I am able to grate and slice in uniform slices. I use this to slice potatoes for french fries and scalloped potatoes and onions for just about everything! I grate cabbage for cole slaw, cheese for pizza and tacos. The uses are endless and clean up is a breeze too!
Here is a great recipe that you can use your new Pinzon Stainless-Steel Mandoline to make...
Scalloped Potatoes (About.com)
A basic scalloped potatoes recipe baked in the oven.
Cook Time: 45 minutes
- 4 cups thinly sliced potatoes, about 6 to 8 medium potatoes
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups scalded milk
- 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Preparation:In a buttered 2-quart baking dish, place a layer of about 1/3 of the potatoes. In a cup or small bowl, combine flour with salt and pepper. Sprinkle about half of the flour mixture over the potatoes; repeat with another layer of potatoes and the flour mixture and top with remaining potato slices. Dot with butter then pour hot milk over potatoes. Cover and bake at 375° for 45 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle cheese over the top. Return to the oven and bake, uncovered, for an additional 15 minutes, or until scalloped potatoes are tender and cheese has melted. Scalloped potatoes serves 6 to 8.
