This recipe for scalloped potatoes is one my mom has made for years. No one in our family was on a dairy free or gluten free diet. We just loved this version of scalloped potatoes and it is so simple to make with just a few ingredients you probably always have on hand. Potatoes, onions, oil, water and seasoning – that is it!
This scalloped potato recipe uses no milk, cheese, butter or flour, so it is perfect for people who try to limit or eliminate dairy or gluten from their diet.
