Old-Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes

This recipe makes a small quantity but still has old-fashioned goodness. These tender potatoes taste great with any main dish, but I especially like them with meat loaf.—Dawn Fagerstrom, Warren, Minnesota

    This is the second time making these Scalloped Potatoes, the last time I added ham, this time I browned some pork chops. These Scallped Potatoes are sooo creamy and delicious. I was telling my sister about them and tonight I am making them again. Very easy to make and very good to eat. This recipe is going in the Recipe Box.
