Baked Scalloped Potatoes

After our two children became adults and left home, I continued to cook meals as usual. Soon we became tired of having to eat the same leftovers several days in a row, so I sat down and came up with this pared-down recipe, which quickly became one of our favorites. -Marilyn MacIntyre, Rome, New York

    2 servings

Ingredients

  • 4-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 2 medium baking potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Directions

  • In a saucepan, combine flour, milk, salt and pepper until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. In a greased 1-qt. baking dish, layer half of the potatoes, onion and white sauce. Repeat layers. Toss bread crumbs and butter; sprinkle over top. Cover and bake at 375° for 50-55 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Editor's Note
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
