AU GRATIN POTATOES

  • 1 Tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 2 cups fat-free milk
  • 2 lbs potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
Heat oven to 375. Coat a 2 quart baking dish with cooking spray. Melt butter in a large pan 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, stir to mix. Bring to a boil. Stir in 3/4 cup of the cheese, salt and pepper. Pour mixture into the baking dish and spread out. Bake
for 1 hour uncovered. Cover and bake until potatoes are fork tender, about 20 minutes more. Change oven temperature to broil. Sprinkle remaining cheese over potatoes and broil 6 inches from the heating element until the cheese is golden brown (about 1 - 2 minutes). Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
