Friday Recipe: Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

I love au gratin potatoes! Delicious and reminds me of Sunday dinners. Course what they don't tell you is all that work in washing, peeling, and cutting the potatoes.

Prep Time:30 Min
Cook Time:1 Hr 30 Min
Ready In:2 Hrs

4 russet potatoes, sliced into 1/4 inch slices
1 onion, sliced into rings (Didn't add, cheesy potatoes are great without the onions)
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 (Or more depending...cheese makes everything better!)

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.
