A tried and true favorite of ours.

- 1⁄4 cup flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- 2 1⁄2 cups milk
- 5 large potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (about 5 cups)
- To make sauce, cook onion in butter till tender but not brown. Stir in flour, salt and 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* oven 45 minutes, stirring once. Uncover, bake 30 to 45 minutes more or until potatoes are done.
This was excellent as dinner the night before last! I added some browned italian sausage to the layers to make it a complete meal and topped it with some shredded cheddar at the end. So good!
I added 1 1/2 tablespoons of smoked peprika. The sause was sooooooo good! This brings comfort food to a new meaning.
This are fabulous!!!! My whole family loves them, especially my 3 year old granddaughter. She requests them frequently. I can't believe I forgot to rate this as I've made them several times. Thank you for the great recipe.
