Last Saturday was one of my birthday parties, with both of us being January birthdays and blessed with enough family to fill the house four times over, we celebrate with a multitude of small parties. Ada, my best step daughter and friend came over for our lunch of roast beef, scalloped potatoes, green beans and bacon, with blueberry buckle to follow. The scalloped potatoes were the hit of the meal. I had to explain that they were the lazy woman's recipe.
Have husband peel and slice potatoes.
Fill the casserole with in an inch of the top, an onion chopped fine, layered in with the potatoes.
Then pour on ranch dressing till the casserole is full.
Cheese slices a quarter inch deep, cover and bake till done.
I check every half an hour or so and if it still looks sloppy I take the cover off and let the excess moisture steam away.
That's it, lazy woman's scalloped potatoes.
