Au Gratin Potatoes

Serves 4

 

5 cups of potatoes, sliced into 1/4 inch slices

1/2 teaspoon each of Garlic powder, Salt and pepper

3 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups milk

1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Grease a 1 quart casserole dish

In a medium-size saucepan, melt butter over medium heat

Mix in the flour and salt, and stir constantly with a whisk for one minute

Stir in milk

Cook until mixture has thickened

Stir in cheese all at once, and continue stirring until melted, about 30 to 60 seconds

 

Layer 1/2 of the potatoes into bottom of the prepared casserole dish

Pour a layer of cheese over potatoes, add the remaining potatoes

Season with garlic powder, salt and pepper

Pour remainder of cheese over the potatoes, and cover the dish with greased foil

Greased foil will keep the cheese and potatoes from sticking to it

Bake 1 1/2 hours in the preheated oven
