Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Writes Dorothy Bateman from Carver, Massachusetts. "This creamy potato dish is so delicious. You can prepare it in the morning, than put it in the oven later—just be sure the sauce covers the potatoes so they won't turn brown."

    My favorite scalloped potatoes recipe. No dairy. Simple and creamy taste.

    I made this recipe today. It's definitely one I'll make again. Only thing I'll do differently is mix the mayo into the roux before adding the broth so it's easier to make it smooth.

    Very delicious! Inexpensive to make. Great recipe if you are trying to cut back on dairy products.

    This can easily become a dairy-free recipe. I use light olive oil instead of butter and have had excellent results. This recipe has earned a spot in our regular monthly rotation!

    Fast becoming a family favorite. Even without milk or cheese the taste is wonderful.
