Potatoes Au Gratin

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by BriarCraft

A natural with baked ham or smoked sausages, this comfort food is made with the same basic sauce I use for Macaroni and Cheese. As a variation, 1 cup of thinly sliced onions added to the potatoes is tasty.

This was a nice potato dish. There were no liquids in the ingredient list, so I added milk until the sauce was thickened before pouring over the potatoes and onions. Mine cooked in about 1 hour. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a 2-quart saucepan.
  2. Add flour and seasonings, stir or whisk until smooth. Whisk in milk and continue to cook on medium-low heat, stirring constantly for 5 minutes.
  3. Turn off heat under saucepan. Add cheese and grated onion and stir until melted.
  4. Wash and slice potatoes approximately 1/8 inch thick. Do not peel.
  5. Place potato slices (and 1 cup sliced onion, if you choose) in a large 3-quart casserole. Note: if you use a smaller casserole, place it on a pizza pan or cookie sheet to catch any sauce that bubbles over.
  6. Pour cheese sauce on top and fold into potato slices.
  7. Bake at 375F for 45 minutes, stir gently, and return to oven. Bake for an additional 30-45 minutes, until potatoes are tender.
