*(All dinners are served with a fresh green salad and steamed veggies of some sort---I also like to include a starch and a dinner roll of some kind---of course with the exception of certain meals like tacos)
Scalloped PotatoesCourtesy of my Mayberry Cookbook
2 Cups of thinly sliced potatoes
1/3 cup minced onion

Grease a casserole dish. Place a layer of potatoes in the bottom of the casserole dish. Sprinkle with some onion. Sprinkle some flour, salt, and pepper over the layers. Dot with butter. Repeat the layers until all of the potatoes, onion, flour, salt, pepper and butter are used, ending with the butter. Pour milk over all, and sprinkle with paprika. Bake covered in a 375' oven for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15, or until tender.
