Potatoes Au Gratin

Potatoes Au Gratin

Simply delicious! I love to make this cheesy casserole.


  • 6 cups peeled, sliced baking potatoes (cut into 1/4 inch pieces)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cup milk (I normally use skim)
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese, divided
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Paprika
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Grease an 8 inch square baking dish
  3. Cook the potatoes in boiling water 5 to 7 minutes or until tender, then drain
  4. In a 1 quart saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted, stir in the flour until it’s absorbed
  5. Stir in the milk using a whisk
  6. Heat this through stirring until the mixture comes to a boil
  7. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in 3/4 cups of the Swiss cheese, 2 tablespoons of the grated Parmesan, the salt, pepper and the garlic
  8. Arrange half of the potatoes in layers in the baking pan then pour 1/2 of the sauce over the potatoes; arrange the rest of the potatoes on top and pour the rest of the sauce over them
  9. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup Swiss cheese and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese over all
  10. Sprinkle lightly with paprika
  11. Bake 30-40 minutes or until browned on top
  12. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving

Really delicious!
