Great recipe for what I call au gratin potatoes. Scalloped potatoes do not have cheese. The way I fix them is to butter a casserole dish and rub a cut garlic over the surface of the dish. Put one-third of the potatoes in the dish and put two or three rings of sliced onions on top. Then put on one-third of the butter in bits, salt and pepper, and sprinkle the flour evenly on top with a small sieve. Repeat twice more and add the milk. You can sprinkle some paprika on top if you wish. Cover with foil and bake. Remove the foil during the last 10 minutes or so to brown a bit on top. Voila! Depression era scalloped potatoes--a standard on my mother's dining table.
