HOMEMADE AU GRATIN POTATOES
4 to 5 potatoes, thinly sliced
4-1/2 TBS butter
4-1/2 TBS flour
3 TBS onion, grated
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups milk
1 cup evaporated milk or half-and-half
3 cups cheddar cheese, grated (divided)
PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees. Butter a casserole dish; set aside.
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 and evaporated milk (or half-and-half).
Cook and whisk constantly until mixture has thickened. Stir in 2 cups of cheese and grated onion. Continue stirring until melted, about 30 to 60 seconds.
Place 1/3 of the potatoes in the bottom of the prepared dish.
Pour 1/3 of the sauce over that; repeating until all is gone. Cover
with foil and bake for 1 hour. Sprinkle the remaining cup of cheese
over all. Uncover and bake for 30 minutes until melted and bubbly.
Nothing like a wonderful green bean casserole for my next easy side dish recipe.
