Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

"This is the best potato and onion dish I've ever tried. I found the base recipe from and doctored it up my way. I've even added cooked diced ham to this and it was outstanding! Enjoy! :o)"

    If you are looking to step away from the canned mushroom soup base - this is one to try. With or without the cheddar - this is a winner! Going into my permanent rotation.

    Very tasty and easy. I was out of cheddar, so went without. This is my comfort-food and it's even better as leftovers, reheated in the oven.

    Very good. Everyone loved them. Very easy to put together.

    My husband raved about these. They were worth the effort and 2 hours it took to cook them. Will definitely make again. Thank You!


I live in Baltimore Md, but I miss my good ole' West Virginia!! I'm a mom of 3 beautiful, wonderful girls who brighten my days and causes my grays! lol I have a wonderful, patient husband, who doesn't mind being a guinea pig for new recipes (well, some things I have to really beg for him to try! Lol). I LOVE to bake, especially around the holidays!! Thanks to Recipezaar I've dabbled with candy making and have had many requests (and reorders) since then! For Christmas gifts I've started making gift baskets of goodies instead of store bought things, which EVERYONE (in-laws included) in my family is extremely grateful for. They get a taste of home-cooking goodness without having to lift a finger! lol I love to garden and I'm learning how to can/preserve the things I grow and the things I get great deals on at the supermarket. I am also interested in recipes having to do with homemade things (like extracts, seasonings, syrups, mixes etc.) I've realized it cuts down on spending and it is usually healthier than store bought. I'm always on the lookout for great appetizers for football season (GO RAVENS!!). I'm not sure if my brother and sister in law come over for football or the things I make to snack on for football!
