Serve these tasty potatoes with burgers, roast beef, pork, or just about any meat or poultry.


  • 2 to 2 1/2 pounds red-skinned potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Peel potatoes and slice thinly. Rinse and cover with water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; boil for 2 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop cooking.

In a saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add the diced onion and sauté until tender; add minced garlic and parsley. Stir in flour and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk, cooking and stirring over medium-low heat until thickened. Stir in cheese until melted and sauce is smooth.

Arrange sliced potatoes in a 2 to 2 1/2-quart casserole, sprinkling layers with salt and pepper. Pour sauce evenly over potatoes. Cover dish and cook at 350° for 40 to 50 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
Serves 4 to 6.

Not all potato recipes are created..full of flavor, Member Cook_Shelley_Ann

Au Gratin Potatoes are a favorite of my 88-year-young father, so, knowing that I was attempting to make a special meal for him, I followed this recipe to the ""t""... Talk about a disappointment. Even my Hubby Paul who attempts to always say something appreciative about my cooking, could only come up with a flat, ""it's okay"". Salt and pepper helped, but even that faithful duo were not the total solution for saving this recipe. In summary - it was a waste of my time...and ingredients. I offer my apology to whomever created this one, but in my estimation - take this one back to the drawing board, please!
