Love these scalloped potatoes which I've been making for years, using a variety of canned soups. They can be baked in the oven, or cooked in a microwave.

    Additional note: I have also cooked these potatoes in my 1,100 watt microwave oven, which I cooked for 10 minutes on power level 7, then stirred. Cooked for another 10 minutes on power level 7, then stirred. Cooked for 5 more minutes on power level 7, then served.
