I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Scalloped Potatoes

This is one of these recipes that I have to admit, I really don't measure the ingredients. I put the measurements down for those who are not used to cooking that way. You really can't go wrong with this. You can throw this in the slow cooker too.

*3 pounds of potatoes, thinly sliced
*1 1/2 teaspoons salt
*2 teaspoons black pepper
*9 tablespoons black pepper
*6 tablespoons butter, diced
*1/2 quart whole milk

~Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
~Grease 2 quart baking dish.
~Arrange one layer of potatoes in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
~Sprinkle the potatoes with salt, pepper, onions, 3 tablespoons flour and 2 tablespoons butter.
~Repeat layering 2 more times, until all the potatoes have been used.
~Slowly pour milk over the potatoes until the dish is 3/4 full of milk.
~Bake until the milk come to a boil (about 5-10 minutes).
~Then reduce heat to 375 degrees.
~Bake for another 60-70 minutes. If cooking in a slow cooker cook on low 6 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.

`Add 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheese to each layer.
`Add Ham or Pork Chops to the top of the potatoes before cooking.

Helpful Hint:
Put a jelly roll pan/cookie sheet under baking dish to keep from making a mess in your stove, if sauce boils over.
