Scrub potatoes. Do not peel or cut. Boil until nearly tender. Cool and peel. Grate potatoes. Put a layer of grated potatoes in a greased flat pan (you can choose the size of pan based on family size, etc). Season with salt and pepper. Add some dry minced onions and some grated cheese (whatever kind you like). Repeat layers.
At this point, if you want to freeze the casserole, cover well with foil and place in plastic bag and freeze. Once they are frozen solid, I pop them out of the pan and wrap well and return to the freezer. That gives me use of my pans.
If you want to cook right away, pour whipping cream (no substitutes) over top to nearly cover potatoes. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
If you freeze them, let it thaw and then pour the cream over the top.
As you can see, this can make as little or as much as you want depending on how many potatoes you cook. I love to have one stashed in the freezer!
