Amy's Note: I just love these potatoes! Worth the time spent on them!


1 Tbsp butter
1 medium onion(s), thinly sliced
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
2 cup fat-free milk
2 pound potato(es), all-purpose, thinly sliced
1 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
1 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 2-quart covered baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour; add milk slowly, stirring. Add potatoes (if you can find Yukon Gold potatoes, use them instead of all-purpose ones for a richer, more buttery taste). Stir to mix. Bring to a boil. Stir in 3/4 cup of cheese, salt and pepper.
  3. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and level out surface. Bake for 1 hour, uncovered. Cover and bake until potatoes are fork-tender, about 20 minutes more.
  4. Change oven temperature to broil. Sprinkle remaining cheese over potatoes. Broil 6 inches from the heating element until the cheese is golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces.
