Au Gratin Potatoes

I've been pondering how to make these for a while without resorting to boxed mixes (although tomorrow's post will be ALL ABOUT things to make using canned goods, I promise) and I was pleasantly surprised when my first ever attemped came out amazingly. So easy too . . .

Au Gratin Potatoes:

-4 or 5 mini white creamer potatoes, sliced very thinly
-about 1/2 a cup of sharp shredded cheddar
-about 1/2 a cup of milk whisked with 1/4 tsp salt, 2 big tblsp flour, a little handful of parmesan cheese and some black pepper

-layer the potatoes in a single layer on bottom of a 1 qt casserole. top with cheese. repeate until all potatoes and cheese are used (about 3 layers)
-pour milk mixture over casserole
-cover and bake about 30-40 minutes, or until potatoes are tender

Seriously. That easy.
