Scalloped Potatoes

Scalloped Potatoes

These yummy Scalloped Potatoes are great as a side with any meal, such as Meatloaf, Meatballs or your favorite steak, or maybe you have some leftovers you can enjoy with these fine potatoes.  I suppose you could also have them as a meal…like I always say, try new things and make them your own.  Enjoy!
