So for your next BBQ, or even the next time you're cooking in a dutch oven over a fire these potatoes will be perfect. Tis the season for Au Gratin Potatoes!
3 Cheese Au Gratin Potatoes
thin sliced potatoes (1-1 1/2 potato per person is oodles.)
I use both red and Russet potatoes in this recipe. I use what I have on hand.
1 thinly sliced onion (Red or Yellow)
salt and pepper
cheeses of choice:
Whatever you have. I love the potatoes with a little of the Blue Cheese. It gives a ton of flavor.
Cream, half and half or milk
All work great!
Spray a large dutch oven or casserole dish with non-stick spray. Start layering potatoes in the bottom of the pan. Over the potatoes spread a thin layer of sliced onion. I usually salt and pepper each layer just a bit. Add the cheese. Any combination of cheese to lightly cover the potatoes and onions. I don't use a ton of cheese. A little goes a long way especially with the stronger flavored cheeses. Continue layering potatoes, onion, s&p and cheese. I usually do about 3 layers of each. At this point I pour in enough milk to cover about 1/4 up the side of the potatoes. You don't need a ton. Place the lid on the dutch oven or cover the casserole dish with tin foil. Place in a 375'F oven and bake for 45-60 minutes. Test potatoes with a fork to make sure they're tender before taking them out. If you'd like to crisp up the top of the potatoes, take the lid or tin foil off the last 10-15 minutes of baking.
Let sit for a few minutes and then enjoy!
