This recipe is from the RSVP section in a February 1981 issue of Bon Appetit. It was requested from Stuart Anderson's Black Angus restaurant in Yakima, Washington. I made this for Easter dinner to go with our ham. I cooked and layered the pototoes in the casserole dish and made the sauce the night before and refrigerated both separately, covered, overnight. The next day, i warmed the sauce slightly and poured it over the potatoes and baked as instructed, increasing the baking time to 30 minutes. It came out perfect!

This was my first attempt at Au Gratin potatoes. These are not my mom's potatoes, which I always thought tasted bland. My husband said they were really good. He ate 3 helpings. They did seem to be missing something, we decided it was onion. I will add some next time. There will definitely be a next time with this very cheesy recipe.

We enjoyed this recipe! I added white pepper and used a goat cheese called potato au gratin. For the top cheese I used velveeta, more of the goat cheese and fresh parmesan. The flavor was great but like the other reviewer I think I'll add onion next time too. Thanks for sharing.
