Au Gratin Potatoes

Au Gratin Potatoes

Since summer is almost here, I thought it would be a good time to share a great side dish for barbecues and summer parties.  So I decided to share these Au Gratin potatoes that my mom made. Don’t they look delicious?  This another one of those recipes that you just sort of throw together and do what you will with it. Hope you enjoy!
Dessert Party Reminder: I’m hosting a cupcake/muffin round-up this Thursday.  So please come back later this week and link up your recipes here.  Older posts are welcome! The linky will go up on Wednesday night, and will be open for a week.  Hope to see there! =)
Recipe for Au Gratin Potatoes:
5-7 potatoes (depending on size and how much you need)
1 small onion (sliced into rings, or decided if you prefer)
shredded cheese (I’d use cheddar or a combination of cheddar & monterey jack)
salt & pepper
Directions: Peel your potatoes, boil them until tender.  Chop up your onion.  You can saute it on the stove top if you prefer your onion to be tender.  After draining the water off your potatoes, transfer to bowl.  Mix your potatoes, onions, and cheese together. (Amount of cheese is up to you.  I like mine very cheesy!)  Season with salt and pepper.  Pour up into glass baking dish.  Top with additional cheese.  Bake at 350 for a few minutes (Just long enough to melt cheese.)  That’s it!
Tips & Suggestions:
If you’d like to add a little spice to this dish, try adding some chopped peppers.
For creamier potatoes, add a little milk and/or melted butter.

    So simple and tasty! Can't wait to make something like that with the red potatoes from my garden. Should be just a few more weeks…
