Au Gratin Potatoes Recipe
Au Gratin Potatoes Recipe (1).jpg


  • 4 medium russet potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced into rings
  • Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Ā½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 Ā½ cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 400Ā°F (200Ā°C). Butter a 1-quart casserole dish.
  2. Layer Potatoes and Onions: Arrange half of the sliced potatoes in the bottom of the buttered casserole dish. Season with salt and pepper. Layer the onion slices over the potatoes, then add the remaining potatoes on top. Season again with salt and pepper.
  3. Make Cheese Sauce: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Gradually whisk in the flour and salt, cooking and whisking constantly for about 1 minute to cook off the raw flour taste. Gradually add the milk, about 1/4 cup at a time, whisking well after each addition to avoid lumps.
  4. Thicken and Add Cheese: Continue cooking the sauce, whisking constantly, until it thickens, which should take about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the shredded Cheddar cheese all at once and stir until melted and smooth, about 30 to 60 seconds.
  5. Assemble and Bake: Pour the cheese sauce evenly over the layered potatoes in the casserole dish. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  6. Bake Until Done: Place the covered casserole dish in the preheated oven and bake until the potatoes are tender and the sauce is bubbly, approximately 1 Ā½ hours.
