My BH found this as an "easy" Au Gratin recipe to work with a nice (but a bit of work) pork tenderloin. I love to "tweek" recipes so I had a lot of fun with this one. I followed the basics, milk, cream, salt, etc. but instead of using regular cheddar cheese, I combined sharp cheddar along with mild chedder, heavy on the sharp (2 ½ cups total-both). I also increased the Parmesan to 1/4 cup and used fresh grated (what a difference!). I didn't heat the milk or precook the potatoes (used 4 large), instead I layered the potatoes with cheese/milk inbetween, seasoned as well. Covered and baked one hour. Then took cover off and baked an additional 1/2 hour. A bit more time, but saved a step. We loved them and the ease of it. Even my young son liked them and he's not a potato-person. Thanks so much for an easy recipe for great Au Gratins.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat ovn to 375 degrees F. In a small saucepan, combine milk and cream. Heat through and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Pour one-third of the milk mixture into the bottom of a shallow baking dish. Season potatoes with salt and pepper. Arrange layer of potato slices over milk mixture, slightly overlapping each piece. Sprinkle one-third of the grated cheddar cheese on top. Repeat two more times until three layers are formed, with the layer of cheese on top. Sprinkle grated parmesan cheese all over.
  3. Bake for 45 minutes or until top is brown and potatoes are tender when tested with a fork. Let rest for 10 minutes to let it set.
