This recipe is one of my favorite side dishes to make. It is relatively easy and here is what you will need:
4-6 Potatoes (or if the potatoes are HUGE like the ones I had 2 is plenty.)
1 medium onion chopped
1/4 cup butter
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
2 cups sharp shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup breadcrumbs (any flavor will work, I used italian breadcrumbs)
Scrub the potatoes clean but do not peel them. Cut them into slices roughly 1/8 inch thick.
Layer the potatoes in a baking dish and set aside.
Melt 1/4 cup butter in a skillet
Add the onions and sauté for about 2 minutes until the onions are soft. Add the flour, salt and pepper and mix together until it bubbles.
Add the 2 cups of milk
Next add 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese, bring mixture to a slight boil and keep stirring.
The mixture will thicken and become a yummy cheese sauce
Pour over the potatoes in the baking dish. Place in a 375 degree preheated oven and bake for approximately 45 minutes-1 hour
While the potatoes bake mix together the remaining 1/2 cup cheese and breadcrumbs.
After the 45 minutes- 1 hour take out the potatoes and sprinkle the cheese/breadcrumb mixture on top and place back into the oven for 15-20 minutes
This is what it will look like!!
Yummy!!! I served these with a yummy seasoned pork loan and corn.
