One Of My Mom's Best: Scalloped Potatoes

I had to show you this potato. It looks like a heart. I had a hard time peeling and cutting this one.

Do you have a favorite dish that your mom used to make when you were a kid? One that you just couldn't get enough of when she made it?

This is so simple, but it was one of my favorites. My mom used to use cream of mushroom soup.

I have a mushroom hater in the house, so I have to come up with good combinations other than cream of mushroom.

I found cream of chicken with herbs and broccoli cheese.

I will have to say, the combination was awesome.

This is what I do:

I peel and slice my potatoes (about 11 large) and then layer them in a 9 x 13 baking pan. Half way through I slip in some sliced onion and dot with butter. I add salt and pepper too.

Then I continue slicing the potatoes till the onion is covered. I add salt and pepper and dot with butter again.

I mix my two cans of Campbell's soup and add one can of milk.

Mix it all together and pour over potatoes.

I then cover them with foil and bake at 350 degree F. for an hour to an hour and a half.

I used to gobble this stuff down when I was a kid. And I always hoped for left-overs because I loved eating my mom's scalloped potatoes cold.

"He settles the barren woman in her home as a happy mother of children."
Psalm 113:9
