Can u please pass on your scalloped potato casserole, I have never heard of it and it sounds Damm good, so I would like to know how to make it, Thanks.
Your casseroles sound quite a bit different to what my mom use to make, and what I am use to. I find our too boring. I love different things to try, especially when they sound so YUMMY.
Thank-you from Spiritwolf.

My grandmother made wonderful scalloped potatoes. She started with her own homemade cream sauce (which is no big deal to make). Butter a casserole dish, and single layer thinly sliced potatoes on the bottom. Top with S&P, finely diced onions, and a scoop of cream sauce. Repeat layers until dish is within 3/4" from the top. Place on foil covered baking sheet to catch drips, cover with lid, and bake in 350 degree oven about 45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Remove lid, top with cheese of your choice, turn heat up to 400, and let the dish brown until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Excellent additions to this dish are: small pieces of ham; cooked and crumbled bacon, fresh chopped parsley, pimentoes, broccoli florets, asparagus tips, frozen peas, chopped green onion tops...a good combination is chopped cooked chicken, peas, carrots, and mushrooms.

Kimbaby, I have a whole different Tator Tot Casserole, but I think you'll like it:

Tator Tot Casserole

2 eggs
1 cup milk
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup ham, choped
1 lb. tator tots, thawed
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp white pepper

Topping:
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup cooked crumbled bacon

Mix first 7 ingredients together. Put in buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with topping. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

I serve it with catsup on the side, forgive me for being so plebian.
These recipies sound very much like what I call here our "POTATO BAKE"
It is also very YUMMY.
All u need is Potatoes,peeled and sliced thinly.
Bacon,chopped.
Onion,chopped and diced.
Creme,either pouring or thickened.
Chedder Cheese, Grated. + S&P

All I do is put the thinly sliced potatoes in a greased baking dish.
Put the Bacon and Onion layered on top. (cooked of coarse)
Sprinkle with S&P
Add a bit of Grated Cheese.
Then REPEAT all of the above.
Finally finish with extra Cheese if you like.
Add a bit of Paprika (Plain or Smoked) if u like, u dont have to.
Then Bake in a 180-200 degree oven (Celcious)
Yours is Farinheit ( I think ) would be about 350-380 ( I think )
You will have to do whatever u do for a casserole,
Bake for about 40-45 minutes, keeping a check on it.(uncovered)
If cheese is melting and browning too much,put a aluminium cover on it for
the last 15 minutes or so.
Time and temperature depends on ovens.
You can also add other things that u like, this is just a plain and simple one.
Enjoy on its own or with a salad and a good steak or chicken,fish, what ever u like.
It is very YUMMY to my family.
Other people may have their own variations, if u do, please let me know,
Thanks everybody, see ya 4 now,
Spiritwolf.

Thankyou suzyQ3, now I know what y'all are talking about, wiki even gave me the name that us Aussies know them as, we all just use different names for them but they are all the same food when it comes to eating and cooking. Thankyou very much everyone. Wiki is sooo good, It explains it all.

This isn't my "favourite" (not sure I really have one) but it's tasty and not time-consuming.

Southwest Style Chicken Lasagna

2 c. shredded roasted chicken
1 Tbs. lime juice
1-1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt (My NOTE: use less salt if chili powder contains a lot or make your own chili powder blend then add salt to taste)
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
16 oz. jar of salsa
15 oz. can chili with beans
4.5 oz. can chopped green chilies
9 6-inch flour tortillas
8 oz. shredded "Mexican" four cheese blend

Combine first 5 ingredients; let stand five minutes and set aside. Saute onion and garlic in oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add salsa, canned chili and green chiles; reduce heat and simmer 3-4 minutes. Line the bottom of an 11X7 baking dish with three tortillas. Layer one half of chili mixture, half chicken mixture and one third of the cheese. Repeat the layers. Top with remaining tortillas. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes; let stand 5-10 minutes before serving.

Leftover chili topped with leftover mashed potatoes and a sprinkle of grated cheddar. (We make extra chili and mashed potatoes just for this dish.)

1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 slices bread cubed
1/4 pound cheese of choice, cubed
Saute onion in 3 tablespoons butter until transparent
Blend in flour until smooth.
Add tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, salt, sugar and pepper.
Set aside.
Saute bread in 1 Tablespoon butter until lightly browned.
In a buttered casserole dish arrange in layer, half cabbage,
half tomato mixture, half croutons and cubed cheese.
End with cabbage, tomato, crouton and cheese.

This recipe is a winner.
