There are many ways to make scalloped potatoes. You can use different kinds of cheeses, sprinkled cooked bacon on top or through the middle of the casserole. Not all recipes include onion. I added onion to the first layer of potatoes. I used extra old cheddar cheese in the cream sauce. Before putting the casserole in the oven, I added a mixture of shredded Italian cheeses. The DH and I enjoyed this dish. And there were leftovers!

Cook the sauce on low until smooth and boiling, stirring occasionally with a whisk. Reduce heat and stir in cheese.
Place half of the sliced potatoes in a lightly greased medium size casserole dish. Add the sliced onions and spread over the potatoes.
