Scalloped Potatoes Au Gratin

Scalloped Potatoes 1b

Have you ever eaten Scalloped Potatoes Au Gratin? I had to look up the name to make sure I called my dish by the correct name. 😉  Were the potatoes from  a box or homemade? With the boxed it’s so easy and convenient all you do is add water and cook. They may be simpler to prepare but, they don’t taste anything like homemade. This is really a very simple recipe. Once you make it you’ll wonder why you hadn’t made it before. You can put as much or as little cheese as you want. I thought this amount was perfect.

You’ll need:

4 Idaho potatoes sliced thin

1 small onion diced

salt and pepper

garlic seasoning

3 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons flour

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups milk

2 cups cheddar cheese

Grease a casserole dish.

Layer 1/2 the thinly sliced potatoes in the casserole dish. Scalloped Potatoes 081

Top with the onions  Scalloped Potatoes 082

Layer the rest of the sliced potatoes on top.  Scalloped Potatoes 086

In a medium sauce pan melt the butter  Scalloped Potatoes 088

Add flour and whisk until smooth.  Scalloped Potatoes 090

Add milk stirring constantly until thickened.

Add 1 1/2 cup of the cheese and whisk until smooth and bubbly.  Scalloped Potatoes 094

Pour over potatoes.   Scalloped Potatoes 100

Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic seasoning and cheese. Scalloped Potatoes 101

Bake in a preheated 400 oven for 1 1/2 hours until potatoes are tender and it’s crusty around the edges.

I place mine under the broiler to make the top brown and crusty too.
