Potatoes I make about twice a year

Creamy Potatoes Au Gratin

  • 4 potatoes, sliced (I leave skin on)
  • 1 onion, sliced in rings
  • 3 T flour
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 c. milk
  • 1 c. cheddar cheese
  • 3 T. margarine

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Grease 13x9 pan. Layer 1/2 potatoes, then onion, then the rest of the potatoes. Salt and pepper.
  2. In medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Mix in flour and salt and stir with wisk for 1 minute. Stir in milk. Cook until mixture thickens. Stir in cheese until melted. Remove from heat, pour sauce over potatoes.
  3. Cover with foil.
  4. Bake 45 minutes to an hour, or until potatoes are fork-tender.
I stole this picture. But mine kind of looked like this, though more pale. Plus we cut the potatoes and put them in the fridge and they turned gray. The taste was the same though.

Anyway, the reason I only make these twice a year is that we rarely have potatoes. They are just mediocre veggies in my mind and they take so long to cook! However, we do enjoy these when we have them, and it is a pretty quick recipe.
