“He looked at me as if I were a side dish he hadn’t ordered.” -Ring Lardner
I had been watching Good Eats with Alton Brown and he did a show on potatoes, which included a recipe for potatoes au gratin. I can almost never pronounce it, but they are delicious so I wanted to make some.
- 6 Medium-Sized Baking Potatoes
- 2 Cups Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- ½ Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
- 2 Cups Shredded Smoked Gouda Cheese
- 1/2 Cup Butter
- 2 Tablespoons Flour
- 1 Cup of Milk
- Salt and Pepper
Grease a casserole dish. Slice the potatoes to about a 1/8 of an inch. Mix 1 cup of cheddar, Parmesan cheese, and 1 cup of Gouda. Layer potatoes and the mix of the cheeses and salt and pepper in the casserole dish.
Melt the butter, milk, and flour in a sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk in cheese.
Pour the cheese sauce over the potatoes and bake at 400 for about 30 minutes or until potatoes are soft.
