My Mom made the very best scalloped potatos! I never measure when I make this, I just throw everything into a casserole dish-just like my Mom did. The evaporated milk gives the potatos a rich, hearty flavor, and the meat makes it a meal. You can also layer browned porkchops on top during the last hour of baking, but they change the flavor a bit.
