Scalloped Potatoes For Two

Since I sometimes have to cook for just me, I've been on a search for recipes that make enough for just one or two people. So when I came across this one in the TOH 2002 Annual Recipes that was sent in to them by Edith Jennings of Prarie City, Iowa, I knew I had to try it.The time for peeling the potatoes has been included in the prep time. I guess if you wanted to speed up the time it takes to prepare this recipe, you could slightly cook the potatoes in the microwave or on the stove top. The addition of the French Fried Onions was my idea. Sumitted to " ZAAR " on October 21, 2009.
