Healthy Au Gratin Potatoes from Danica's Daily


Makes 8 servings      PointsPlus: 5

1 Tbsp butter
1 medium RED onion(s), thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
2 cup(s) fat-free skim milk
2 pound(s) Yukon Gold potato(es), thinly sliced
1 cup(s) low-fat shredded SHARP cheddar cheese (grate your own as it melts better)
1/4 c shredded parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic salt or sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1.  Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray.
2.  Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds.  Stir in flour; then add milk slowly, stirring.
3.  Add potatoes and stir to mix. Bring to a boil. Stir in 3/4 cup of the sharp cheddar cheese and 2 tbsp of the shredded parmesan cheese, garlic salt and pepper.
4.  Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and level out surface. Bake for 1 hour, uncovered. Cover and bake until potatoes are fork-tender, about 20 minutes more.
5.  Change oven temperature to broil. Sprinkle remaining cheese over potatoes. Broil 6 inches from the heating element until the cheese is golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes.
6.  Allow to cool for 5 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces.
