Are you looking for a quick dinner for tonight? Here is something!
5-6 thinly sliced potatoes
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 dash cayenne pepper
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated cheese , to sprinkle on top
Dash of Paprika
In a small sauce pan, melt butter and blend in flour. Add the milk while stirring with a whisk. Season with salt, and cayenne. Cook sauce on low until smooth, stirring occasionally with a whisk until it boils. Reduce heat and stir in cheese. Place a half the sliced potatoes in a lightly greased casserole dish. Pour half of cheese sauce over potatoes. Repeat with second layer of potatoes and cheese sauce. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Top with some paprika.
Other Ideas: My mom some times did this, throw a couple hotdogs on top before baking the dish. Something a little different for dinner : )
Bake uncovered for about 1 hour at 350°F
