A hearty side dish that would go well with a flavorful fish recipe and a fresh green salad. 

Ingredients

  • 2 small potatoes (2 pounds, sliced thin)
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 cup onion (sliced)
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups milk, whole

Directions

1. Wash potatoes; peel and cut into thin slices.

2. Melt 1 Tablespoon of margarine in heavy, deep skillet. Remove skillet from heat; spread half of potato slices in skillet.

3. Cover potatoes with onions. Sprinkle half of flour and pepper over potato mixture.

4. Add remaining potato slices, flour and pepper. Cut 1 Tablespoon of margarine into small pieces and place on top of potato mixture.
