Scalloped Potatoes

Tonight I made scalloped potatoes for part of Dan's birthday dinner. It's my great grandma Carver's recipe and I love them. I'm not sure if they are better than other recipes but they have a sentimental value for me.

10-12 medium sized potatoes, peeled and sliced thinly
1 onion, diced small
Whipping cream or milk
Salt and Pepper

In a 9X13 pan layer potatoes, onions, salt and pepper, and sprinkle flour over entire layer. Repeat layering until potatoes are gone. Pour cream or milk into pan until it is just about to cover the top layer of potatoes. Place strips of bacon on the top layer of potatoes. Bake at 375 for about an 1 hour or until potatoes are soft. (Place 9X13 dish on a cookie sheet in oven for any spillage.) Let stand for 30 minutes. It will thicken as it cools.
