There is nothing quite like a delicious scalloped potato recipe as a side to almost any main dish you could imagine, but this particular baked potato recipe has an extra special ingredient called cannabutter. This fantastic addition contributes a whole lot more than just a buttery flavor, as cannabutter is filled with powerful soothing cannabinoids that will leave you relaxed and satisfied at the end of a long day.

Scalloped potato recipe pairings

This thick and rich scalloped potato recipe pairs perfectly with almost anything, but if you’re looking for ideas, a great place to start is with your favourite roasted meat. Options like pork loin, beef chuck, or sirloin are ideal, but it tastes just as incredible when served alongside a single burger too. So don’t feel obligated to fancy things up, just for the sake of this side dish, because it truly doesn’t need it.

Cannabutter and scalloped potato recipe

This isn’t your average baked potato recipe, so before you begin, it’s a good idea to have all of your potatoes peeled, pitted, and washed. If you don’t have cannabutter on hand, then it can always be substituted for a similar ingredient such as cannabis oil or concentrates, but you’ll want to use much less than what’s called for in this recipe, watered down with some good old-fashion regular butter. This creamy scalloped potato recipe is perfect for lazy days and fancy occasions, so don’t hold back and share the love no matter what day it is.

Ingredients

  • 6 large potatoes
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 ½ cups grated cheese
  • 3 tablespoons cannabutter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika

Tools

  • Sharp paring knife
  • Strainer
  • Saucepan
  • Spoon
  • Whisk
  • Deep baking dish

Instructions

  1. Start by preheating the oven to 350°F and slicing all of the potatoes into thin pieces and placing them into a strainer.

  2. Run ice-cold water over the potatoes to remove some of the extra starch, and to ensure that they are clean, before setting them aside.

  3. Add the cannabutter and flour to a saucepan and then set the burner to medium heat.

  4. Once the cannabutter melts, slowly pour in the milk.

  5. Stir everything well with a whisk, and then toss in the cayenne pepper and salt.

  6. Turn the heat down to low and allow the ingredients to gently simmer with the occasional stir for approximately 5 minutes.

  7. Next up, add only 1 cup of cheese to the saucepan.

  8. Whisk the creamy sauce and continue to let it cook until the cheese has melted. At this point, move the sauce to a cool burner so that it doesn’t scald while you put everything together.

  9. Dump half of the potato slices into the baking dish, followed by half of the sauce.

  10. Now add the remaining potatoes, and a final layer of sauce while trying to ensure that each potato bit is evenly coated.

  11. Sprinkle the paprika and remaining cheese on top of the scalloped potatoes, and then bake the whole thing in the oven for 1 hour.

Once the scalloped potatoes are cooked, they are best served warm, either plain or with a complimentary topping like sour cream or ranch dressing.
