Layer thin sliced potatoes in a well greased deep baking dish, covering the bottom. Then sprinkle each layer with salt, pepper, onion, parsley and flour (be sure to cover each layer almost completely with flour), and here is where you add Velveeta to make these into Au Grautin. After you almost fill the dish with layers, dot with butter and cover the layers completely with Milk. Bake uncovered at 375° until potatoes are tender.
