I FOUND this recipe in an old magazine. Later, I discovered that adding garlic gave these potatoes a unique flavor. My greatest compliment came from a neighbor who's a retired chef - he said this is the most delicious potato dish he'd ever tasted! -Leah Brandenburg, Charleston, West Virginia


  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cups 2% milk
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 thin onion slices
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced


  1. In a saucepan, stir flour and milk until smooth. Add the garlic, butter and salt; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese until melted.
  2. In a greased 1-qt. baking dish, layer onion and potato slices; pour sauce over all. Cover and bake at 350° for 20 minutes; uncover and bake 20 minutes longer or until the potatoes are tender.
