Narnia Dinner: The Beaver Family dinner Luby's Whitefish and potatoes

We have been studying Narnia, so we decided to change our plans for dinner and have a Beaver Dinner instead. We decided to have scalloped potatoes and Luby's Baked Whitefish. Don't let the baked part fool you, this in decidedly NOT healthy, underneath a huge slather of mayo hides a bit of fish. Yumtastic, but it doesn't qualify as "healthy", or even "healthy-ish".

Luby's Baked Fish


  • 8 Skinless fish fillets
  • 1/2 c flour
  • 1/2 cup Parmesean
  • 3 1/2 c mayo (up to 4)
  • lemon pepper seasoning
  • Dried parsley flakes
  • Water
Coat fish with flour and shake off excess. Lay in dish without overlapping fish. combine the rest of the ingredients. Spread mayo mix on top of fish. add 1/8" water to dish to keep fish moist. Bake on 350 for approx 20 min or until you can flake fish with fork.

Scalloped Potatoes


  • 4 cups thinly sliced potatoes, about 6 to 8 medium potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups scalded milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


In a buttered 2-quart baking dish, place a layer of about 1/3 of the potatoes. In a cup or small bowl, combine flour with salt and pepper. Sprinkle about half of the flour mixture over the potatoes; repeat with another layer of potatoes and the flour mixture and top with remaining potato slices. Dot with butter then pour hot milk over potatoes. Cover and bake at 375° for 45 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle cheese over the top. Return to the oven and bake, uncovered, for an additional 15 minutes, or until scalloped potatoes are tender and cheese has melted. Scalloped potatoes serves 6 to 8.
