We like our potatoes au gratin recipes to be creamy, cheesy and (if we're honest) easy! This one fits the bill perfectly.
2 Tbsp. butter
1 cup ORE-IDA Chopped Onions
2 Tbsp. flour
2 cups fat-free milk
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne)
1 pkg. (28 oz.) ORE-IDA Potatoes O’Brien
1 pkg. (8 oz.) KRAFT Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Heat oven to 350°F.
Melt butter in medium saucepan on medium-high heat. Add onions; cook 3 min., stirring occasionally. Stir in flour; cook 1 min., stirring constantly. Add milk and red pepper; stir until blended. Bring just to boil, stirring constantly. Simmer on medium-low heat 1 to 2 min. or until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
Layer half each of the sauce, potatoes and cheese in shallow casserole sprayed with cooking spray. Repeat layers.
Bake 30 to 35 min. or until heated through.
