Au Gratin Potatoes                                                         6  servings

This is one of the first recipes that I made after I was married.  Still the same recipe, with the same



ingredients and it always turns out the same, except for when I forgot to set the timer and it burned.

Being such an easy recipe though, it's so easy to take it to another level.  See the Options below.




•  1 onion

•  6 small-medium potatoes*

•  1 tsp salt1 tsp salt

•  ¼ cup butter

•  ¼ cup all-purpose flour

•  2 cups milk

•  1 cup grated sharp cheese**

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Grease a 9-inch square baking  dish.




1.  Peel and slice the onion and potatoes into a bowl of salted water; rinse; add to a large saucepan with 2 cups water.

      Bring to boil; add 1 teaspoon salt and cover.  Cook until tender; drain; place in prepared baking dish.

2.  In medium saucepan, melt butter then whisk in the flour.  Add the milk slowly, whisking until smooth.  Continue



      cooking and whisking until thickened.

3.  Fold in the cheese and stir until melted; pour into baking dish over potatoes; sprinkle with paprika.  Bake until



      brown and bubbly, about 15 to 20 minutes.

*I don't peel if I'm using red potatoes, just wash really well.

       **Sharp cheese gives more flavor.


•  1 chopped green pepper

•   3 strips of cooked, diced bacon

•  Leftover roast beef or cooked chicken
