    Real easy and it works all the time.

    sliced potatoes
    diced onions
    flour
    milk
    margarine
    salt and pepper

    In a baking pot, grease up the bottom with margarine. Layer potatoes, onions, a dusting of flour. Repeat until you get to a inch or two to the top of the pot. Fill up the pot with milk until the potatoes are covered with milk. Put on a few globs of margarine. Salt and pepper. Bake it until the the top is browned and put a fork into it in the middle until its done.

    My preference is 300 degrees. The time, I would estimate 2 hours. If you want the sauce is thicker, put some more flour, or cook it longer.

    Really simple.

    In my opinion, scalloped potatoes without baked ham is taboo.

    i sometimes use a can of mushroom soup instead of milk and flour.
    layer spuds and onion, mix up soup with half a can of milk, pour over top, shake the pan around a bit to settle and bake.

    I also add layers of sliced cheddar cheese in my recipe to add more taste (I use the flour/milk recipe). I know one friend who adds melted cheese whizz into the milk.

    Scalloped Potatoes


    Ingredients:
    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

    Preparation:
    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.

    I use the first recipe listed but I also add a diced red pepper on top of the potato layers. It adds a bit of colour and has a nice flavour.

    I do my scalloped potatoes in the crockpot

    Slice the potatoes, dice up some onion.
    Layer it in the crockpot.

    Take either a Large can (or 2 small cans) of Cream of Mushroom Soup and pour over the top, add a little bit of milk...
    Let this cook for approx. 2hrs and then put on the top grated cheese.
    Let it cook for 3-4 more hours.


    Its delicious and saves the oven for the ham
