Thanksgiving Potatoes Au Gratin

potatoesIf you’re looking for a last minute idea to jazz up your potatoes this year, we’ve got you covered.  This is our family traditional potato dish, and we thought we’d share it with you.  Easier than you think it would be, it makes a delicious addition to any dinner!

Potatoes Au Gratin

4 russet potatoes, sliced into 1/4 inch slices

1 onion, sliced into rings

1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

3 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 cups milk

salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400°.

In a buttered 2 quart casserole, layer the potatoes, onions and cheese, while evenly placing small pats of butter in the layers. Reserve a little cheese for topping.  In a medium bowl, stir the milk, flour, salt and pepper until smooth, and pour over the potato mixture.

Put into the oven and bake until potatoes are tender, about 35 minutes.  Let cool for around 10 minutes and enjoy!

 

Halloween!

I want to thank everyone for coming to our Halloween party despite the rain and rampaging illness!  We had a great time and got to see everyone all dressed up.  And the contest winner for $100 food credit was Office Stephen Barker – or should I say Lt. Dangle?  Congratulations and better luck next time to everyone else.  We’re plotting something fun again, you can count on it!
