Recipe by Bone Man
READY IN: 2hrs




  • To make the white sauce, begin by melting butter in a double boiler.
  • Blend in flour and seasonings.
  • Add milk gradually, bring to a boil (stirring) and maintain a mild boil for two minutes.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Set aside in a warm place when finished.
  • To prepare the potatoes, boil or bake the potatoes, not too soft!
  • Cool boiled potatoes in cold water; drain, refrigerate until cool; peel and slice.
  • To assemble and complete the dish, spray a Pyrex 8"x12" casserole dish with Pam Spray (or grease lightly with shortening).
  • Pour a little white sauce in the bottom of the pan.
  • Layer one half of the potatoes on top of the white sauce.
  • Pour and spread just slightly less than half the remaining sauce over that layer.
  • Sprinkle on half of shredded cheese.
  • Add a second layer of potatoes.
  • Spread the remaining white sauce and cheese, just as before.
  • Sprinkle the bread crumbs, with the melted butter mixed in, over the top of the white sauce and cheese.
  • Bake in a preheated 375 degree fahrenheit oven until the top becomes golden brown. (About 45 minutes - watch this closely!).
  • Serve hot.
