Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Made with Rich & Creamy MELT® Organic instead of butter, Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes is my husband’s favorite dish. The creamy cheese sauce and the tender potatoes in this classic French dish combine to make a deliciously addictive experience. It is the perfect side dish with roasted pork loin or beef tenderloin, and it is easy to experiment with different cheeses for variety.

Ingredients

4 Russet potatoes, peeled and sliced into ¼” rounds

1 onion, thinly sliced into rings

3 tablespoons MELT® Organic

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon salt

Salt and pepper to taste

2 cups milk

1½ cups grated Cheddar cheese

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  • Grease 1 quart casserole dish with organic virgin coconut oil
  • Layer half of the potatoes into the bottom of the greased casserole dish.
  • Top with the onion slices and add the remaining potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a medium-size saucepan, melt MELT® Organic over low heat. Mix in the flour and salt and stir constantly with a whisk for one minute or until it thickens.
  • Stir in the milk and raise the temperature to low-medium heat. Cook until the mixture thickens.
  • Stir in the cheese all at once and continue stirring until melted, about 30 to 60 seconds.
  • Pour the cheese mixture over the potatoes and cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  • Bake for 90 minutes. For a nice golden crust on top, place under broil for 10 minutes uncovered.
