Christmas Dinner always has a cheesy potato dish. I think it is just customary. Or at least it is in our house. I don't think I have ever turned down a potato dish even when dieting. I just cant resist. At Christmas we usually have a standing roast and cheesy potatoes just go hand and hand with red meat.
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. With all you have going on Christmas day, this is perfect. No fuss. It can even bake along side something else.
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
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
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.
