Ingredients

A typical side dish that makes it to the table to sit alongside a ham is scalloped potatoes. They can be rich and decadent especially when people enjoy the cheese flavour. So this recipe has reduced fat and more nutritious vitamins with the addition of sweet potatoes to the mix.

2 tbsp (30 mL) canola oil
1/4 cup (50 mL) all purpose flour
3 cups (750 mL) skim milk, warmed
1/2 cup (125 mL) crumbled Stilton cheese
1 tsp (5 mL) Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper
3 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
2 small sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 small onion, thinly sliced

Preparation

  1. Heat oil over medium-high heat in saucepan. Add flour and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Whisk in milk slowly and continue whisking gently for about 5 minutes or until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and add blue cheese, mustard, salt and pepper; whisk until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Alternately layer Yukon Gold and sweet potatoes with onion in lightly greased or sprayed 13 x 9-inch (3L) casserole dish. Pour milk mixture evenly over potatoes.
  3. Bake in 375 F (190 C) oven, uncovered for about 1 hour or until potatoes are golden brown and tender when pierced with a knife.

DID YOU KNOW?

Bone is a living tissue, that is constantly renewing and repairing itself from everyday wear and tear.  However, like many nutrients, calcium is absorbed less effectively as we age.  Try out our calcium calculator to see if you are getting enough in your daily diet.
