LAYERED POTATO SLICES

I have had this recipe since we got out of the US Air Force in 1970.

6 medium potatoes (enough for around 4 cups), peeled and sliced thin
4 tbsp butter, divided
salt
pepper

Melt half the butter in a large heavy (cast iron works great) skillet. Divide potatoes into thirds and layer one third on bottom of skillet. Sprinkle potatoes with salt and pepper to suit taste. Add the second third of potatoes and layer over the salt and pepper. Add more salt and pepper,if desired. (I like a little seasoned salt over this layer.) Layer the last third of the potato slices; sprinkle with some pepper. Dot this top layer with the remaining butter. Cover skillet and cook over medium heat for 20 minutes. Remove lid, turn potatoes and cook until browned.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings
