1-1/2 cups milk
4 cups thinly sliced peeled potatoes (about 2 pounds)
1 medium onion, finely chopped

In a small saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter; stir in flour, salt and pepper. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
In a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish, arrange half the potatoes, onion and green pepper in layers; cover with half of the sauce. Repeat layers.
Cover and bake at 350° for 35 minutes. Melt remaining butter; combine with bread crumbs and sprinkle over potatoes. Bake, uncovered, about 40 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 6 servings.
Review: These were good. The cook time was off only took about 50 mintues to cook. I substitued green onion for yellow! Husband ate bell paper without noticing.
We rounded off the meal by serving it with salad.
