School Recipes - Savoury Layer Potatoes

I loved the cookery lessons at the Allertonshire School, Brompton Road, Northallerton. I attended this school from 1982-1985 and had cookery lessons with Mrs Drury, Mrs Garlic and Mrs Pennock. I still use the recipe books today and thought I would share them with people online. Please try them out and let me know what you think.
Savoury Layer Potatoes
1lb potatoes
1 onion
1oz butter/margarine
1/4 pt of milk/stock
OR miss out milk and add 4 tomatoes or 4oz of cheese or both. The onion can be missed out.
You will neeed a dish and lid or foil for the oven.
Oven - 190 c for 90 minutes or use your microwave, I use it for 20 minutes at full power (800 watt microwave.)
1) Oven on, grease dish.
2) Peel and slice potatoes and onion.
3) Layer ingredients in dish with slat and pepper (add milk if used).
4) Dot with butter, cover and bake.
This is nice on its own or with sausage, bacon or baked beans or even all three.
