Ok, so you can go out and buy those Betty Crocker Au Gratin potatoes in a box, but those are nowhere NEAR as good as homemade. And this recipe is a super simple recipe to make and will be far better than the boxed stuff. Real ingredients are always better than dried potatoes and powdered cheese. Right? Right!! You can do this!! :-)
