Cooking Instructions – Scalloped Potato Recipe

Using a large casserole baking dish, grease the inside of the dish. First you need to wash, peel and thinly slice each potato. The sliced need to be thin.  Begin evenly placing the sliced potatoes into the bottom to create a layer. Once your layer is in place, season with salt, pepper  and onion powder. If you are using fresh onion then sprinkle finely chopped onion.  Shave a thin piece of butter off the top of a fresh cube and break it up, then add to that layer. Repeat this process until you reach about 1-2 inches from the top of your casserole.   Whisk flour and milk together, then pour over the layers until its just over the top layer of the potatoes.

Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 1 1/2 hour – 2 hours
