Why I Love This Recipe

Here's a recipe I made last year for christmas day to go with our ham:

Ingredients You'll Need

2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 cups milk
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Colby cheese
6 medium russet or yukon gold potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs or panko


Preheat oven to 375F°.

Melt butter in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook in butter for 2 minutes until tender, stirring occasionally.

Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Cook until bubbly, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Stir in milk and heat to boiling for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Stir in 1 1/2 cups of cheese until melted.

Spread potatoes in ungreased 1 1/2-quart casserole.

Pour cheese sauce over potatoes.

Bake for 1 hour, uncovered. Mix remaining 1/2 cup cheese and bread crumbs, then sprinkle over potatoes.

Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes until top is brown and bubbly and potatoes are tender.

** awesome with steamed broccoli and ham!
