Hubby was grilling pork chops for supper tonight and he suggested that we have Au Gratin Potatoes with them. Since I did not have a recipe for Au Gratin Potatoes I searched J.A.P. for a quick recipe but came up empty handed as far as one that had the ingredients that I had on hand at the house. A friend on Facebook...Dan Clark...suggested this recipe. It was based on "scratch notes" from his mother. It was so delish that I asked his permission to post it to JAP. So here it is with just a few minor adjustments.

NOTE: After this last 30 minutes if you'd like a little more cheese on your potatoes, you can put it on top of the potatoes and bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden brown. I did this...Hubs did not like the extra cheese so I will not do it that way again. This extra cheese is NOT listed in the ingredients as it was NOT in the original recipe. It is something I added.
Yummy! Thanks, Dan...your recipe is a keeper....9/14/13
