Savory Potatoes

Categories: Vegetarian/Vegan, Sides

Submitted by: Stacy Walker - The Backroad Life

These potatoes smelled delicious as they were baking and reminded me of walking into my grandma's house as she was making a meal for the family. The smell of potatoes, onion, and pepper together takes me back to a smells of a homestyle meal.


  • 6 med. potatoes
  • 2 sm. onions
  • salt to taste
  • 1 pint milk (2 cups)
  • pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish and set aside.

Clean and slice the potatoes into thin slices.

Chop onion into small minced size pieces.

In a baking dish, create a layer of potatoes. Then sprinkle lightly with onion. Add salt and pepper for taste. Repeat layers until out of ingredients.

Add milk over the potatoes to cover them. Bake at 400 degrees F. for an hour or until potatoes are tender.
