Our cheesy potatoes au gratin is the perfect comfort food. If you can find Yukon Gold potatoes, use them instead of all-purpose ones for an even richer taste.


  • 1 Tbsp salted butter

  • 1 medium uncooked onion(s), thinly sliced

  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour

  • 2 cup(s) fat free skim milk

  • 2 pound(s) uncooked potato(es), all-purpose, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup(s) low fat shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1 tsp table salt

  • 1⁄4 tsp black pepper


  1. Preheat grill to medium.

  2. Preheat over to 375°F. Coat a 2-quart covered baking dish with cooking spray.

  3. Melt butter in a large pot 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 cheese, salt and pepper.

  4. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and level out surface. Bake for 1 hour, uncovered. Cover and bake until potatoes are fork-tender, about 20 minutes more.

  5. Change oven temperature to broil. Sprinkle remaining cheese over potatoes. Broil 6 inches from the heating element until the cheese is golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces.
