Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes

fullsizeoutput_112cWith Easter here, you may be wondering what to serve with your ham this year. One of my families favorite dishes every year are these mouth watering Au Gratin Potatoes.

The key to these is to get your potatoes sliced as thin as possible. I like to use a mandolin. Not only does it get your potatoes super thin, but it makes quick work of a tedious job! And don’t be afraid to go heavy on the cheese! In the words of my boys, you can never have too much cheese!


3 Tablespoons Butter

3 Tablespoons Flour

1-1/2 teaspoons Salt

1/2 teaspoon Pepper

2 Cups Milk

1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese

5 Cups thinly sliced, peeled potatoes

1/2 Cup chopped onion

In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add the milk. Bring to a boil. Once this comes to a boil, cook and stir continually for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove pan from heat. Stir in the cheese until it is melted. Then add the potatoes and onion. Pour into a greased 2 quart baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° F for one hour. Uncover and bake 30 to 40 minutes longer  or until the potatoes are tender.

This recipe make 6-8 servings. Enjoy!!
