Scalloped potatoes

Lately I have been trying to get the perfect scalloped potatoe recipe figured out. Last night I think I got it... even the 2 pickiest eaters in the family thought it was very good!! This never happens, those 2 would live on bread, cheese, apples and crackers If I`d let them. so without anymore blathering here is what I came up with:

Creamy Scalloped Potatoes

5-6 med potatoes thinly sliced
half an onion thinly sliced
2 Tbsp butter or margarine
2 Tbsp flour
half a cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 can cream of celery soup
milk to fill the emptied soup can
salt and pepper to taste

Toss the potatoes and onion together in a casserole dish. In a medium sauce pan melt the butter, add the flour, salt and pepper,stir and cook 1 or 2 minutes. add the soup and milk, whisk smooth, and heat until it begins to simmer. Add the cheese and remove from heat, stir until cheese is JUST melted. pour over the potatoes, toss to coat. bake covered at 350 for about 1 hour.

serves about 6.
1 Cup is about 40 carbs

Enjoy, there won`t be much, if any for leftovers!
