Mom's Scalloped Potatoes

This is definitely the best time of year to make some of those favorite recipes you had as a child.  What better way to warm up on a chilly fall day than with some comfort food?

For Mom's Scalloped Potatoes you'll need:
5-6 potatoes depending on the size
wash and slice them really thin (you can peel the skin if you're not a fan of skin - but there are lots of nutrients in the skin so keep it if you can)

About 1 cup of milk

1/4 cup of butter (or margarine or vegan margarine, etc)
1/4 cup of sugar (you can use a sugar substitute if you want to make a healthier recipe you'll have to play around with it to get the right amount that you like)
1/4 cup of flour
salt and pepper

That's it! Simple recipe :)

You can be fancy and make layers - but I like the old - put everything into a bowl and stir it around, put it into a casserole dish and bake 350F for about 45-50 minutes. (just until bubbling and potatoes are tender)

Let it sit for 5-10 minutes before eating.
