Scalloped mirlitons

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Cooked mirlitons; sliced or cubed
½ \N Green pepper; finely chopped (optional)
½ teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Butter; melted
½ cup Onions; finely chopped
1½ cup Medium white sauce
1 cup Seasoned bread crumbs
2 tablespoons Butter
2½ tablespoon Flour
1¼ cup Milk
½ teaspoon Salt
¼ pounds Velveeta cheese


Slice or cube mirlitons after paring them. Cook in a small amount of boiling, salted water until barely tender. Grease a baking dish, put in a layer of mirliton, sprinkle with onion and green pepper. Cover with a layer of white sauce, add remaining mirlitons. Top with buttered bread crumbs and bake in a moderate oven 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until bubbly hot and crumbs are browned.

To make White Sauce; In double boiler (or in saucepan over low heat), melt butter, add flour and salt, stir until blended, slowly add milk stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Cook, stirring constantly, until smooth and thickened; add cheese and cook until cheese is melted.

By adding the cheese to the sauce, it makes this dish a very delicious casserole.
