An excellent thrifty, time saving recipe which I keep stored in a labeled 2 pint canning jar, as I usually make a double batch.
List of Ingredients
1 tablespoon dry milk
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
3 cups potatoes -- 1/8-inch thick slices, peeled and sliced, tightly packed into measuring cup
1 cup hot water
1/3 cup milk
3 tablespoons Sauce Mix
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
Sauce Mix: Combine the Sauce Mix ingredients to make 1 package of mix. Seal and label. For extra convenience make up more than one batch and store in a jar at room temperature. Use 3 tablespoons sauce mix for each recipe.
To use: Place potatoes in a pot; they should be sliced no thicker than 1/8-inch. Add the hot water and quickly bring it to a boil; cover the pot immediately; lower heat and gently boil for 5 minutes or until the potatoes are just tender. Pour the cooking water from the potatoes into an ungreased casserole dish; pour the milk into the casserole; then blend in the Sauce Mix. Add the potatoes and dot with butter.
Bake at 400 degrees F for about 25 minutes until sauce thickens and the potatoes are tender throughout.
In a 350 degree F oven, bake for 30 to 35 minutes; in a 325 degree F oven, bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Serves 4.
Quick Ham Casserole: Before baking the potatoes, add 1 1/2 cups diced ham.
