Ingredients

4
medium yukon gold potatoes, peeled and sliced very thin
2 Tbsp
butter
2 Tbsp
a.p. flour
1 c
milk
1 c
shredded cheddar cheese (we use tillamook!)
1/2 tsp
salt
pepper, to taste
dash(es)
cayenne pepper
dash(es)
paprika
a little extra shredded cheddar cheese on top only makes it better

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Note: You can parboil potatoes if in a hurry.
2
Place half the potato slices in 1 1/2 qt. greased baking dish. Sprinkle a little pepper on top of slices.
3
Make a roux from the butter and flour. Whisk constantly, until smooth. Add cayenne pepper, salt, and cheddar cheese. When cheese is melted, pour HALF the sauce over potatoes.
4
Add second layer of potatoes. Top with remaining cheese sauce. Sprinkle with a little more paprika and cayenne. You can also sprinkle on a little extra shredded cheddar cheese if the mood strikes you.
5
Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 60 min. or until potatoes are tender. Gently stir about half way through to prevent the bottom potatoes from getting too brown.
