Purple Potatoes

Remember waaaaay back when I told you about my purple potatoes?
And how they were so sweet and yummy?
They're actually blue potatoes - a variety called "All Blue", because they not only have 'blue' skin, but blue flesh too.
Do these potatoes look blue to you?
Whatever, it was probably named by a color blind man.
No offense men!
but you're more likely to be color unaware.

This is the only recipe for scalloped potatoes you will ever need.
No joke.
Write this down.

Chop onions

Thinly slice potatoes.
Your color choice.

In a greased baking dish layer potatoes and onions.
Sprinkle salt, pepper and nutmeg lightly over each layer.

Keep making layers.

Pour your cream over the top until it covers the potatoes.
It should look like this.
And I hope you are not making this with milk!
No cheating!
You have to use whole fat yummy CREAM.
It won't work with milk - not even 2%.
Sprinkle on some more pepper, salt and nutmeg.

Bake at 350 degrees - until bubbly and light golden brown on top.
About 1 hour.

Now looking at the pics - when it's cold it looks blue, when it gets warmed up it looks purple.
So weird.
But tasty.
