A simple recipe that is an old-fashioned way to serve potatoes. I adapted this recipe from one I found in a cookbook from 1956. The cooking time may vary based on the thickness of the potatoes.


  • 3 pounds potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced onion (or scallions, with some green as well)
  • 1/2 cup butter, sliced
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne
  • 1 1/2 tsp. garlic
  • 3 cups milk, scalded


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine spices in a small bowl. Grease a 9 x 13 glass baking dish. Place one layer of sliced potatoes on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle 1/3 of the spice mixture on the potatoes and "dot" potatoes with a few randomly placed slices of butter. Repeat process two more times, using all of the potatoes. Pour scalded milk evenly over the potatoes. Place in the oven until liquid comes to a boil, then reduce heat to 375 and bake until potatoes are done, about 45 minutes.
