Scalloped Potatoes With Cheese

“Canadians will understand the source. A well used Chatelaine's Cookbook dated late 60's. Very easy and every time I have made them I get requests for the recipe. I tend to do more 3 to 4 potatoes per layer and my salt is Lawrys Seasoning Salt. I think that is the secret ingredient. I don't really measure anymore, I just do what looks good. I would say I use 2 tbsps flour per layer and 1.5 tbsps butter a good shake of the salt and a couple grinds of pepper. Hope you like.”
