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!
