Easy Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

These Au Gratin potatoes were so creamy, cheesy and delicious. These taste great with ham and steak, but really they are the perfect side dish for whatever you are serving. This is also the easiest way I have ever found to make au gratin potatoes. I have tried the recipes where you layer the potatoes and cheese, but this one you mix everything together and then dump it in your baking dish. Not only was there a lot less prep time, but I feel like this way made the potatoes cook faster and more evenly. I will be making these potatoes again and again and I know I won’t hear any complaints from my family.easy creamy au gratin potatoes

      April, I’ve never tried it, but I think if you covered them in the fridge for a few hours they would turn out just fine.ReplyCancel
