Recipe by BeachGirl
READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • Note:*** This casserole has no sauce which allows some of the top and bottom potatoes to get crispy- the more the better! Be sure to use a 9x13-inch casserole. DO NOT use a deep dish casserole as this will prevent the potatoes from cooking properly and getting crunchy.
  • ***Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray the 9x13-inch casserole with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place half of potatoes in bottom of casserole dish.
  • Place layer of onions over potatoes.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Place remaining potatoes on the top layer.
  • Drizzle butter over the entire casserole, using total of 4 tbs butter, if not counting calories.
  • Spray top of casserole with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Cover and bake 20 minutes in lower third of the oven.
  • Uncover and bake an additional 40-50 minutes until potatoes are done and casserole is golden brown on top.
  • If you are lucky, the bottom potatoes will be a little browned, too!
  • VARIATION: During last 5 minutes of baking, sprinkle casserole with 4 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
  • Let melt and serve.
  • HAM-POTATO VARIATION: Add 8-12 ounces cooked ham or smoked pork shoulder, cubed, between the onion and potato layers.
  • Bake as directed.
