Scalloped Potatoes

For years I have wondered if there was a difference between Scalloped Potatoes and Au Gratin Potatoes. It seemed that often they were referred to interchangeably. I finally looked it up for myself to see what the difference was. Here is what I found out, basically Scalloped Potatoes are a more creamy sauce and Au Gratin Potatoes have more cheesy. If you know me, you would have probably thought I would have then immediately gravitated to the Au Gratin Potatoes due to my love affair with cheese. But I wanted to come up with a classic Scalloped Potato and Au

Onion-Roasted Potato Salad with Bacon

I’m not sure why this recipe is just being posted for all to see, but it is by far one of my most favorite recipes of all time.   I sincerely apologize for the delay in sharing this must have recipe.  I love this particular potato salad. It is really nothing like a traditional potato salad, but so much better. I have never been a fan of traditional potato salad, so sad to say I know. However, this variation here is amazing.
