Author Notes

My mother made this to accompany ham on Easter. She claimed she just made it up herself, but I think my Grandmother originated it. —Karen Taggart

Directions
  1. Peel potatoes and slice in the Cuisinart with the 2 mm slicing blade. Place slices in cold water so they don't discolor while you proceed.
  2. Spray cooking oil on 3 quart casserole dish (pyrex) and set oven to 400 degrees
  3. Place potato slices, slightly overlapping, in one layer in the casserole dish and sprinkle with salt, pepper, minced onion, green pepper and shredded cheese. Place 2 -4 tiny (3/8") squares of butter on top of the cheese. Repeat. There will be 4 to 5 layers, so plan the amounts for the layers accordingly.
