I wanted to try a new potato recipe & this recipe was a perfect side dish to the main course which was ham. I love scalloped potatoes & I didn't want to make them from a box so I got creative & made them from scratch. I made this recipe for myself & my husband. This recipe can be doubled to feed 4-6 people.
