Scalloped Potatoes Etc. Recipe

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. My food processor now speeds up the preparation. But, otherwise, I follow Mom's recipe. So does my daughter—she recently told me, "It makes my apartment smell just like home!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 70 min. YIELD:4-6 servings

"I am a TOH field editor and this is our favorite way to make scalloped potatoes!!! I have made these as our three sons were growing up. They do take alittle bit of prep time but are so worth it!!! They were a huge favorite for my father-in-law! And these potatoes reheat well!!!"
