This delicious potato casserole is a perfect choice for a family meal, potluck dinner, or holiday feast. Feel free to add some ham or bacon to the potato mixture, or use a different cheese or blend of cheeses. Rub a cut clove of garlic over the baking dish for light garlic flavor.

What You'll Need

  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick, red-skinned or another waxy type
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup milk

How to Make It

  1. Put sliced potatoes in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and boil for about 4 to 5 minutes, or until just barely tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat oven to 375 F and grease a 2-quart casserole.
  3. In a saucepan, heat butter over medium heat. Stir in the salt, pepper, mustard, paprika, and flour. Stir until smooth and bubbly.
  4. Stir in the cream and milk and cook, stirring, until thickened. Stir in about 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese and cook until melted.
  1. Combine the sauce and potatoes and spoon into the baking dish. Top with remaining cheese. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, until bubbly and nicely browned. Serves 6.
