Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Wow, were these good! And if you can slice and whisk, you can make this recipe! My 5 year old (surprisingly) didn’t like these, but my 9 year old did. I wanted them to brown more on top, but they were getting brown on the bottom so I took them out of the oven. I served these potatoes with a kale salad and some crusty bread.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes
(All Recipes magazine, Feb./March 2016)

Ingredients:

4 russet potatoes, sliced into 1/4 inch slices
1 onion, sliced into rings
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Butter a 1 quart casserole dish.
Layer 1/2 of the potatoes into bottom of the prepared casserole dish. Top with the onion slices, and add the remaining potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a medium-size saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Mix in the flour and salt, and stir constantly with a whisk for one minute. Stir in milk. Cook until mixture has thickened. Stir in cheese all at once, and continue stirring until melted, about 30 to 60 seconds. Pour cheese over the potatoes, and cover the dish with aluminum foil.
Bake 1 1/2 hours in the preheated oven.
