Post Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes
Makes 4 servings.

4 russet potatoes, sliced into 1/4 inch slices
1 onion, sliced into rings
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Butter a
1 quart casserole dish.
2 Layer 1/2 of the potatoes into bottom of the prepared
casserole dish. Top with the onion slices, and add the
remaining potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
3 In a medium-size saucepan, melt butter over medium
heat. Mix in the flour and salt, and stir constantly with a
whisk for one minute. Stir in milk. Cook until mixture has
thickened. Stir in cheese all at once, and continue
stirring until melted, about 30 to 60 seconds. Pour
cheese over the potatoes, and cover the dish with
aluminum foil.
4 Bake 1 1/2 hours in the preheated oven.
