A simple recipe made with ingredients I always have on hand. I used a medium size onion cut into thin slices. After placing the potato, onion and sauce mixture in the casserole I sprinkled it with paprika, I find it browns better. This makes a large pan, great for company and leftovers are very tasty too!!
this recipe turned out great.we had it with ham when copmapny came over.aafter cooking there was a little more liquid than we expected,but it did not affect the taste.
I just love this recipe. Blending the milk and flour before adding it to the potatoes makes a big difference on how the sauce thickens. Thanks for posting!!
