3 medium baking potatoes
1 onion, sliced
(sliced peppers are optional)
3-4 oz cheese, grated (I like cheddar)
about 3 tablespoons flour
2-3 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper
3/4 cup milk
Wash the potatoes and slice them on the thin side. Slice the onion and the peppers if using. Grate the cheese. Oil an 8 by 8 inch pan well.
Layer in the potatoes, onions, cheese, and peppers, sprinkling about a tablespoon of flour over each layer, and dotting with butter. Add salt and pepper to taste, and sprinkle the last bit of cheese over the top. Pour in the milk. Cover the pan with foil and bake at 350 for an hour to hour and a quarter, until milk is bubbling and potatoes are soft. If you remember (I didn't), remove the foil halfway through so the cheese can brown on the top.
Serve with your favorite easy meat and a green vegetable.
