Scalloped potatoes

Scalloped potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes. You can prepare them a couple of days in advance and just pop them in the oven 1-1/2 hours prior to dinner.
You will need an 8x 11 baking dish at least three inches deep. Peel and cut your potatoes into 1/8th inch slices. Put some milk and a table spoon of butter on the bottom of the baking dish.
Now you can start layering all your ingredients. Lay down a layer of potatoes then sprinkle with flour, add a small amount of pepper and salt. Then sprinkle a layer of cheese. Every other layer spread one tablespoon of butter.  Repeat this process ½ inch from the top of the baking dish.  Once all the ingredients are layered put ½ cup of chopped fresh parsley on top and full with milk. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 1-1/2 hours. 

5 lb. bag of potatoes peeled and sliced 1/8 inch thick
2 cups colby jack shredded cheese
3 tablespoons of butter
Salt and pepper to taste
½ cup chopped fresh parsley
