Old Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 cups milk
9 medium potatoes
2 tablespoons minced onion
1 1/2 cup American cheese
In 2 quart saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in flour, salt and
pepper until blended; continue cooking 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Gradually
stir in milk and cook until sauce is thickened and smooth, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and set aside; stirring occasionally to keep skin from forming
on sauce surface. Peel potatoes, slice thinly. In greased 2-quart baking dish,
arrange 1/2 the potatoes, sprinkle with 1/2 the onion; pour 1/2 sauce over top.
Repeat with remaining potatoes, onion and sauce. Cover with aluminum foil and
bake at 350 degreed for 1 hour. Uncover and bake for 1 hour longer or until
potatoes are fork tender and top is brown.
