SOME OF THE BEST REVIEWS ABOUT THIS RECIPE
“This is my husband’s favorite dish, and he considers it a special occasion every time I make it. The creamy cheese sauce and the tender potatoes in this classic French dish combine to make a deliciously addictive experience. It’s a great side dish with a roast pork loin or beef tenderloin. Add a green salad and French bread, and you have found the magic path to a man’s heart. To avoid lumps in your sauce, add the milk just a little at a time as you stir the flour and butter. Experiment with different cheeses for variety.”
I’m constantly asked to make my version of this recipe. Here’s what I do differently that I think makes it better. 1. No onions. (I think they just get in the way of the potato and cheese flavor) 2. Make extra cheese sauce (I think an extra half recipe of sauce will do it) 3. Put extra cheese in the sauce. (at least an extra half cup, but to your taste) 4. Layer cheese sauce between layers of potatoes. (make sure to grease the pan well or it’s hard to get off after baked) 5. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top for extra crispiness. I made two huge pans of this for a party with 30+ people and it all went. Definitely a favorite of mine.
I make a roux (using the butter and flour), add it to the warmed milk, and season the cream sauce with the salt and pepper. I layer the potatoes and onions to the nearly the top, slowly add the cream sauce till just even with the top row, and bake for an hour. Same ingredients, but a with a consistent cream sauce and great taste every time.
