Potatoes Au Gratin
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 1-2 tablespoon flour
- 2 cups nonfat milk
- 2 lbs potatoes, thinly sliced
- 1 cup shredded low-fat cheese
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Coat a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
Melt butter in a large frypan over medium heat; add in onion and cook stirring occasionally until onion begins to brown (about 5 minutes).
Stir in flour, then slowly add in milk.
Add in potatoes; stir to mix; bring to a boil.
Stir in 3/4 cup cheese, salt and black pepper.
Pour mixture into prepared baking dish then spread out. Bake for 1 hour uncovered.
After 1 hour cooking time cover with foil and continue to bake another 20 minutes more.
Change oven to broil heat. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over potatoes and broil 6-inches from heat until the cheese is golden (about 1-2 minutes). Cool 5 minutes before serving.
