My aunt made this favorite potato cheese casserole over and over at the request of family and friends. It's a very easy side dish to make. —Lois Jeffery, Chesterland, Ohio


  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup shredded Romano cheese
  • 8 cups sliced cooked peeled potatoes
