Simple Au Gratin Potatoes
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 1-1/2 hours
The best potato gratin I have ever made or tasted! Only added fresh grated garlic plus extra black pepper, sea salt and fresh thyme. I even used part semi skimmed milk part skimmed milk and the roux still cooked up lovely and thick. Firm texture and cuts well hot or cold. Freezes well too.

This recipe should have 'NO STARS!" I have never heard of baking thinly sliced potatoes for an hour and a half...seemed strange...but I tried it...what a mushy, nasty mess! Absolutely no taste, as others said bland! This recipe needs to be thrown out, or needs to be tweaked to the point that it is edible...I think I will stick to throwing it out.
This recipe is extremely bland. Definitely use more salt and other seasonings. The end result was not worth the time or effort.
You should cook the potatoes 1st
Unmitigated disaster!!!!!!!! Followed this recipe to the letter. The potatoes were still hard and the sauce curdly and soupy. I put it back in the oven and it took nearly another hour for the potatoes to soften. I had to finish the serving in the microwave. The sauce just did not hold up. I have no idea why... but I am going with a different ratio of ingredients next time
Ok, I've made these 3 or 4 times now and they always come out greasy. I follow the recipe and use cream instead of milk, and there is always pockets of grease when I take them from the oven. The flavor is good, potatoes are done, but grease on top. Any suggestions? ...Rick. [email protected]
This was the best au gratin potatoes I've ever made. Every slice of potato was covered in creamy cheese sauce. i used half and half instead of the 2% milk. I'll never make them in the layered method again!
I like au gratin potatoes and was raised on the Betty Crocker boxed ones, problem is my wife hates the consistency of boxed ones. Made these yesterday and we both loved them. Simple and easy to make, we had the leftovers with tonight's dinner and may even have tasted better rewarmed. Definitely keeping this recipe!
As another reviewer stated. First time followed the recipe to the letter. It turned out ok, was just a little too bland for our taste. Tweaked this time with a little more seasoning and a tad more cheese. Oh, and I topped with breadcrumbs after uncovering.
