Potatoes au Gratin

My husband loves potatoes.  More than a normal person should.  Ha.  One of his favorite dishes is Potatoes au Gratin.

 He loves them.  And I hate making them out of a box.  I hate making anything out of a box.

First you're going to need:
2 baking potatoes sliced
3 tablespoons of butter
3 tablespoons of flour
2 minced garlic cloves
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1 1/2 cups of milk
Melt the butter in a medium sauce pan
Add the flour and stir constantly for 2 minutes
Next add everything else.
Continue stirring periodically until it is thick like a gravy.
Now you'll need 2 cups of cheese. (Sit 1/2 cup aside)
Add it in and then stir until melted.
Follow the next pictures:
Sprinkle the other half cup of cheese over the top.
Cover it with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
After that 30 minutes is up, uncover and bake for another 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven and cut it into 9 pieces (that's what I did) in this 8x8 pan.
I served this with buttermilk fried chicken and zucchini fries (the fries are tomorrow's post).
