From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at www.dorothymcnett.com. This is a very open ended recipe...timings and quantities depend on how many people you want to serve! Just add more milk and more baking time as needed. This recipe is also nice with about 1/2 cup snipped cooked ham or pastrami added to one of the middle layers.
2-3 medium to large sized potatoes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drizzle a little olive oil over the bottom of a glass or ceramic baking dish with sides about 2 inches high and big enough to hold the layers of sliced potatoes. Slice the potatoes and arrange a layer in the dish, sprinkle with some onion, salt and pepper and dots of butter or olive oil. Repeat with 1-2 more layers of potatoes. Heat the milk and pour it over the potatoes to almost cover them, but the milk level is about 1/2 inch below the surface. Sprinkle with paprika and snipped chives. Bake uncovered for about 45-60 minutes. Potatoes should be tender, and the top browned a bit.
