Basic Au Gratin Potatoes
10-15 Potatoes--pealed and sliced thin, be sure to rinse the sliced potatoes very well.
1/2 Cups diced Onions
1/4 Chopped fresh parsley
1/4 to 1/2 Cups Butter (or such)--Sliced into wedges
1/4 to 1/2 Cup Flour
Several Pinches of Salt and Pepper.
These ingredients are to be layered into a baking dish. Start with a few of the butter slices and then pile on the potato slices--the goal is to create 3-4 layers. Sprinkle some Onions, parsley and a pinch of the salt and pepper on top of the potatoes. Then dust everything with the flour. Continue making layers until everything is in the pan. Pour Milk over the whole dish until the potatoes are covered and soaking in the milk.
Bake in 350 degree oven until the potatoes have soaked in all the milk and the top browns.
