Au Gratin Potatoes




The Players!



Peel potatoes and cut into 1/2" rounds.  Put in a large pan and cover with water.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer and cook until fork tender.


Drain potatoes.  Spray a baking dish large enough to accommodate the potatoes with 
1” head-room.   (I used a 8” x 11” x 3” oval baking dish).


Layer potatoes down first, sprinkle lightly with flour on top of the potatoes.  Spread some cubes of butter on top of the flour, add salt and pepper and a little grated cheese. 


 Repeat layers until potatoes are used up, then pour the milk all around  and on top of the potatoes.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese.







These were a wonderful side dish with my ham.  My family loves these potatoes and yours will too.  No bites today, they ate them before I could take photos!




The Recipe:
Au gratin  Potatoes

5 medium size russet potatoes
¼  cup flour
¼  stick of butter cut into small cubes
1 ½ cup of grated cheddar cheese
1 ½ cup of milk
salt and pepper

Peel potatoes and slice into 1/2” thick rounds.  Place potatoes into a large pan of water (enough to cover potatoes) and cook until fork tender.

Spray a baking dish large enough to accommodate the potatoes with 1” head-room
(I used a 8” x 11” x 3” oval baking dish).

Layer potatoes down first, sprinkle lightly with flour on top of the potatoes.  Spread some cubes of butter on top of the flour, add salt and pepper and a little grated cheese.  Repeat layers until potatoes are used up, then pour the milk all around  and on top of the potatoes.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until brown and bubbly.

Can be made ahead of time and refrigerated.  You might have to bake longer because of it being cold so adjust your time maybe for 10 minutes.

Happy Eating!
