The "Etc." in this family-heirloom recipe stands for all the homegrown vegetables my mother, now 90, once hand-diced before baking the casserole in her old reliable cookstove.

These popular potatoes are served at The Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. The old-fashioned scalloped potatoes set up firmly and cut into individual servings.—Cassa Norris, Douglasville, Georgia
It's a family tradition to have this potato casserole at Christmas, Easter, birthday parties...any time our family gets together. Mom always makes it, and we all look forward to it. A family gathering without it would not be complete.
