There is nothing more comforting to me than potatoes. Sweets are not even on my radar. Potatoes are heavenly. Tonight I am making The Fireman a manly meal, Steak with Mushroom Topper, Roasted Cauliflower and Speedy Augratin Potatoes. Now to be honest, I would be a happy camper with the steak and mushrooms. Its very hearty and very satisfying. But my man needs a starch to go with his meal and being the girl I am, how can I refuse him?
This potato dish is as easy as it comes for Augratins. You dont need to slice it all up pretty. It's a dump it and bake it dish. I dont even really measure. I am giving you measurements but feel free to wing it.
Speedy Cheesy Augratin Potatoes
4 large potatoes cut into quarters. Don't cut too thick
2 cups of whole milk
2 TB butter
2 heaping TB flour
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cups cheddar cheese grated

Cut the 2 TB butter into chunks and place into the bottom of a Pyrex dish
In a bowl mix together with a whisk milk, flour, salt and pepper
Put 1/3 of the potatoes in the bottom of the Pyrex dish. Pour 1/3 of the milk mixture over the potatoes. Cover with cheese.
Repeat two more times.
