Scalloped Potatoes

These potatoes are so so good. This is a recipe revived from my childhood. My sister kept asking me to make those Scalloped Potatoes like Mom use to make them. Finally I asked Mom to show me how to make them. They couldn't be easier. You don't have to make a sauce. You just layer the ingredients and bake. The recipe comes from an old Betty Crocker's Cookbook. This is the book at my Mom's that is stained, pages falling out and the binding or cover is separate from the pages. It is Mom's go to cookbook. I am so happy to have this recipe to share.
