Onion Scalloped “Baked” Potatoes
Recently I was chatting with one of my neighbors’ and discussing different recipes I was working on. During the conversation she brought up that her mother used to make a delicious, scalloped potatoes. After she told me how it was made, she said she doesn’t make it because it calls for lots of margarine and it’s not healthy. Later that day when I was in the kitchen, I decided to try to make a “healthier” version of the dish my neighbor described. I’m not sure if it is anything like her mothers, but I am sure it is out of this world delicious. Enjoy!
1 5lb bag Idaho potatoes – peeled and sliced very thin
1 large Spanish onion – cut in half and sliced thin
1 cup canola oil
2 Tablespoons onion soup mix
4 frozen garlic cubes
1 Tablespoon Kosher salt
½ cup coconut milk
