Yup, sliced potatoes, onion, cheese and a broth (celery is safest broth to use for those with allergies) and if you want it a tad bit crispy some bacon bits and or bead crumbs.  Cheese!!!

Interesting, all I've ever used is milk almost to the top of the layers. Scalloped potatoes are always in a creamy sauce for me. Lot's of onions and black pepper along with flour and butter between each layer. Sometimes I'll add cheese or bacon.

Substituting 35 percent cream for some portion of the milk goes a long way to making it rich and thick

Sorry, the broth I spoke of is a cream based soup.

Celery soup is very flavourful, I use it with elbow mac and canned tuna for a quick casserole.

I loved that soup too Albert till I became allergic to mushrooms.  Hence the change up to another cream based soup. 

The soup makes it nice and rich with the cheese.

Exactly how we make it. My wife's is better than mine. Never cheese or bacon. Butter and taters is enough calories for me.

I follow my mom's recipe which doesn't use any soup or milk.

In a casserole dish, I layer the bottom with slices of butter.  Top the butter with the thinly slice potato, one layer. Add sliced onions on top of the potato layer, then salt, garlic power and Parmmy cheese, then another layer of thinnly sliced butter. Repeat the layers until you reach the top of the dish. The top layer gets the same as below, except it gets significantly more Parmmy cheese on top.

Bake at 375 for 45 to an hour.

No, this is NOT a low cal version, but the potatoes will get crispy and butter saturated. Feel free to dip any bread into the butter at the bottom of the dish!
