This is probably my weakness when it comes to side dishes this time of year! Basically, if it has carbs, it’s a favorite or mine 🙂
Potatoes Au Gratin are soo easy to make and for some reason they’re always viewed as a little more special at our house than just regular mashed potatoes or another potato side dish. They go with pretty much any meat and vegetable and the ingredients are usually things you already have on hand. I love when I don’t have to make a trip to the store to make a yummy dinner! And, let’s not forget that these are smothered in cheese, which makes them even yummier! (However, I did grow up in a household with family who couldn’t eat cheese and my mom would always make one side of the casserole cheese-less, which works as well!) I just always felt bad for the non-cheese eaters!
3 medium size potatoes, sliced thin
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups milk

salt and freshly crushed black pepper, to taste
