Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Top Review by PanNan

This is a wonderful classic. It is the same recipe I've used for years. It's a huge family favorite. We made it tonight to go with ham. I always grease the casserole with butter before layering the potatoes, then I salt and pepper each layer of potatoes and onion slices, and put a few dabs of butter between the layers, too. A trick I've learned is to pre-cook this in the micro-wave for about 10 - 15 minutes before finishing in the oven. It shortens the cooking time. I keep it covered in the oven until the potatoes are fork tender and then continue uncovered until the cheese sauce is golden brown and bubbly.
