Au Gratin Cheesy Potatoes Recipe

"This is one of my favorite ways to fix potatoes," Lois reports. Slices are coated with a cheesy sauce and topped with golden crumbs. "We often serve it with baked ham on New Year's Day," she notes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 2 cups Basic White Sauce
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled, cooked and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  • 1. In a saucepan, prepare a double recipe of the white sauce. Stir in cheese, salt and pepper; cook and stir until cheese is melted. Gently stir in the potatoes until coated.
  • 2. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Toss bread crumbs and butter; sprinkle over potatoes. Cover and bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Uncover; bake 10 minutes longer or until crumb topping is golden brown. Yield: 8 servings.

"Family loved this recipe. I cubed the potatoes instead of sliced and added bacon. Will definitely use as my standard au gratin recipe from now on."

"[quote user="cmkarkos"]The recipe calls for cooked potoates. It doesn't mention HOW. Do you bake them, boil them or what? And for how long?[/quote]

Personally I would boil them - just until they were fork tender.  I don't see any reason why you couldn't cheat and use canned, sliced potatoes as well.  The flavor wouldn't be as fresh and you'd want to decrease the salt for sure - but it would certainly work well & speed up the prep of the dish."

"Started making this recipe then realize I didn't have enough cheddar. Made up the difference with Havarti! Wow, that was really good. Now, I alternate depending on the main dish I'm serving! Thanks for this recipe!"
