My husband loves potatoes and from time to time requests scalloped potatoes, which his mom would make him and his siblings for dinner when he was growing up. Im Italian so we never had this as a "dinner"... but anyhow here is my version. He liked it as much as his moms. So life is good :)

Add some grated parmesan (I didnt measure just use as much or as little as you like) Add the French's Fried Onions and half of the shredded cheese. Add the rest of the potatoes and add the rest of the Frenchs Fried Onions, another good handful of grated parmesan and the rest of the shredded cheese.
