Easy, Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes

Serves 6-8

In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour and cook, whisking, for 1 minute. Whisk in milk and bring to a gentle simmer. Remove from heat and stir in garlic, 1 cup cheese, cayenne, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce, stirring until cheese is melted.

Spray the bowl of a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Layer half the potatoes on the bottom. Layer half the onions evenly over the potatoes, then pour half the cheese sauce over the onions. Repeat layers, then sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or until potatoes are tender.


About the Authors

The Best of Bridge began in 1975 when eight women bridge partners were inspired to write their first cookbook. Since then, they've sold more than four million copies of their cookbooks and have become one of the top brands in Canadian publishing.

Now, more than 40 years later, the Ladies of The Best of Bridge are retired. Wanting their legacy to last, they reached out to well-known Calgary food writer and cookbook author Julie Van Rosendaal and her friends and writing collaborators Sue Duncan and Elizabeth Chorney-Booth to carry on their traditions.

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
