Crockpot Au Gratin Potatoes

4 Russet Potatoes Sliced into 1/4 slices

3 TBSP butter

3 TBSP Flour (I used Rice flour)

2 Cups Milk

1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese

Salt & pepper

1 tsp onion powder


Preheat Crockpot on High or Oven to 400 degrees.

Butter a 2 quart Casserole dish for oven baking or if small enough to fit in crockpot. Otherwise, use the crockpot crock.

Layer 1/2 of the potatoes into the bottom of the prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle Salt, Pepper, and onion powder and top with remaining potatoes. Season with salt & pepper again.

In a medium saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Mix in the flour and 1/2 tsp salt, and stir constantly with a whisk for one minute. Stir in milk. Cook until mixture has thickened.

Stir in cheese all at once, and continue stirring until melted (about 30 to 60 seconds. ) Pour cheese over the potatoes.

Place casserole dish in crockpot or oven. Or place lid on crockpot.

Bake in crockpot on high for 3 hours or Bake covered for 1 1/2 hours at 400 degrees in oven.

Makes 4 Servings
