Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes for a Perfect Fall Meal

Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes are the perfect side dish to a family meal. Finely sliced potatoes and onions are blanketed in a creamy cheese sauce then baked to perfection for a dish that the whole family will love.  I can never quite seem to make enough Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes and the pan is empty in minutes when it gets to the table!

Easy Ingredients for Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes

Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes have a few ingredients, and one of the great things about this recipe is that you can make them gluten-free!  With so many people looking for gluten-free recipes, it’s nice to find some comfortable favorites that fit the bill.  I use tapioca flour instead of all purpose flour in Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes for a smooth cheese sauce.  You can use a variety of cheeses, but I find the best flavor with an extra sharp cheddar or smoked cheddar.  When I don’t have shredded I slice the block thinly and it works just as well as shredded.  I’ve found that round white potatoes work best and have a creamy texture in the finished Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes.  Plus, they are pretty inexpensive, making this dish even more attractive.

Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes on a Buffet

Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes are an easy dish to make for a buffet or gathering, especially with a slow cooker.  Follow the recipe as above, layering in a buttered crock of your slow cooker.  Turn to low and let cook 6-7 hours, until potatoes are tender.  You’ll have a fantastic pot of Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes that everyone can enjoy.

    This recipe sounds wonderful! Will be trying it real soon! But I just had to mention the picture….I have that exact slicer you’re showing. That has got to be my favorite & most used kitchen gadget! I bought it from some cheapy catalog, the first year I was married and that was 38yrs ago! Still use it & it’s still in perfect condition……Love it!
