How To Make Au Gratin Cheesy Potato Bake:
- Pick your potatoes.
For this recipe, I used just regular russet potatoes. However, you could use some sweet potatoes, red potatoes, potato fingerlings, etc.
To prepare them, I rinsed and peeled them with my potato peeler. You don’t have to peel them, but I don’t love the texture of the skin.
- Place them in prepared pan.
I sprayed my pan with non stick cooking spray, then laid them out.
I also cut my potatoes pretty thin so they would cook faster and each potato slice would have more cheese on it.
- Make the sauce.
This sauce is super easy to make.
It’s a very light sauce, and all you have to do is melt it together in the pan.
I continually stirred it with a whisk to be sure it was the desired texture, and didn’t lump up, or burn.
- Pour the sauce over the potatoes.
Next I poured the sauce over the potatoes and added some salt and pepper. You can also add a little extra cheddar cheese to sprinkle on top, if desired.
- Bake and Serve.
Throw it in the oven and bake it for about 20-25 minutes (more or less depending on how thick you cut your potatoes) at 350 degrees.
After it came out of the oven I topped it with some dried chives, and it was delicious.
We also recommend eating immediately. This is best served warm and fresh out of the oven.
