Scalloped Potatoes

Scalloped Potatoes

A delicious warm side dish or main dish meal for those on a budget. I included this recipe after a suggestion by my dear friend and “Mom” May Nolan of Rogersville, New Brunswick.

2 pounds potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (4 5 cups)
1 onion, thinly sliced
half and half milk and water (fresh, canned or reconstituted powdered)
margarine (or butter)
salt and pepper to taste

Place layers of potatoes, onion, 2 or 3 dots of margarine, salt and pepper in a greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish, finishing with a layer of potatoes. Pour milk over all and add a little more salt, pepper and dots of margarine.
Bake in a 350ºF oven for about an hour, until potatoes are cooked and a nicely browned crust is formed.
Suggestions: include a layer or two of grated cheese for extra protein. Sprinkle parmesan cheese, paprika or bread crumbs on top. A little sprinkle of dill weed hidden inside really brings out the flavour of the potatoes! Topping the dish with canned milk before baking gives a delicious brown crust.
