Ol-blue, this sounds delicious! I have always prided myself on my scalloped potatoes (cheese or not), but I am going to give this a try. I am making meals for a young family in need at the moment and I am sure they will just love this!

Debbie, these potatoes were superb! I used 4 tablespoons of diced onion
in this recipe, 4 slices of thick, sliced bacon, and I added 1/4 teaspoon of
pepper to the flour mixture. I substituted grated Parmesan cheese for the
shredded, and baked this exactly for 1 hr in the oven. Can't wait to make
these again, as they were soooo good!! Thanks for the recipe Debbie!

I think I just gained a pound and a half just looking at the picture and reading the recipe! I'll definitely do this (maybe with Domestic's modifications) the next opportunity I have. Thanks!
