5 large potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (5 cups)
To make sauce, cook onion in butter or margarine till tender but not brown. Stir in flour, 1 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/8 tsp. pepper. Add milk. Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Place half of the sliced potatoes in a greased 2 quart casserole. Cover with half of the sauce. Repeat layers. Bake, covered, in a 350 degree F oven 45 minutes, stirring once. Uncover, bake about 30 minutes more or till potatoes are done. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes
Prepare recipe as above, except reduce salt to 1 teaspoon; stir 1/2 cup shredded American cheese into sauce till melted.
My variation is to increase flour to 1/3 cup and milk to 3 to 3 /12 cups for creamier potatoes. Also, add parsley as desired.
One of my most requested dishes to bring to a dinner.
Boil potatoes in jackets. Peel and dice. Combine cottage cheese, onion, salt, sour cream and garlic. Fold in potatoes. Place in 1 1/2 qt. baking dish. Top with cheese and bake at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes.

RE: Scalloped Potatoes
This sounds wonderful! Have you tried using different kinds of cheese? We rarely use process cheese because of health issues. (03/03/2007)
I would think you could use any kind of cheese you prefer - I prefer the "plain" scalloped potato version because it can go with so many main courses. Hope you like it - whichever version you decide to make! (03/04/2007)
Place a layer of sliced potatoes in buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and flour. Dot with butter. Repeat until all ingredients are used. Pour hot cream over potatoes and bake at 350 degrees F for 1-1 1/4 hours. Serves 6.
I boil sliced potatoes until almost done. Drain pour the potatoes in a oven safe dish. I then cut up a whole stick of butter and dot over the potatoes. Then combine 1 can cream of chicken soup with 1 can of carnation evaporated milk.Pour this over potatoes. Lastly I spoon a small jar of cheez whiz over the top. Move potatoes around so that all of the good stuff seeps to the bottom. I bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes. So good! (03/30/2010)
