Scalloped Potatoes with Fritos (1955)

  • 4 cups peeled, thinly sliced potatoes
  • 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup crushed Frito corn chips
  • 1 cup or more of milk
  • Butter
  • Salt and paprika
Cover the potatoes with cold water, let stand 15 minutes, and drain well.  Arrange in a layer in a greased baking dish, dot with butter, and season well with salt and paprika. 

Reserving 1/3 of the cheddar cheese, alternate layers of buttered, seasoned potatoes with grated cheese.  Mix the remaining 1/3 of cheese with the crushed corn chips, and add as last layer.

Pour milk over all until it can be seen through the top layer. Bake at 350 degrees for 1-1/4 hours or until tender.
