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.


SCALLOPED POTATOES (serves 6)
Ingredients:
*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

Directions:
~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.

Variation:
`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.
