  • 1½ lb red potatoes sliced thin (1/8 inch)*

  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • ½ tsp dried garlic granules
  • ½ tsp dried thyme

  • 1¼ C shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • ⅔ C shredded fresh parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.

  3. Reduce the heat to low and slowly add in the milk, stirring constantly, so that a sauce forms without lumps. Increase the heat to medium again and bring the mixture up to a gentle simmer for one minute or until it begins to thicken, then remove it from the heat.

  5. Lightly grease a 9x13 pan with with butter or cooking spray and arrange half of the potatoes evenly along the bottom and then evenly sprinkle with all of the onions. Evenly coat the potatoes and onions with half of the creamy sauce. Next arrange the remainder of the potatoes and coat with the remainder of the creamy sauce.
  6. Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling and the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
*The potatoes should ideally be sliced with a mandolin.
