Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

  • 6
    medium boiling or baking potatoes (2 lb)
  • 1/4
    cup butter or margarine
  • 1
    medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1
    tablespoon Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 1/4
    teaspoon pepper
  • 2
    cups milk
  • 2
    cups shredded natural sharp Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
  • 1/4
    cup Progresso™ dry bread crumbs (any flavor)
  • Paprika

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F.
  • 2
    Scrub potatoes but do not peel. Cut into 1/8-inch slices to measure about 4 cups.
  • 3
    Melt butter in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion in butter about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until bubbly; remove from heat.
  • 4
    Stir in milk and 1 1/2 cups of the cheese. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute.
  • 5
    Spread potatoes in ungreased 1 1/2-quart casserole. Pour cheese sauce over potatoes.
  • 6
    Bake uncovered 1 hour. Mix remaining cheese and the bread crumbs; sprinkle over potatoes. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake uncovered 15 to 20 minutes longer or until top is brown and bubbly.

  • Not only does using unpeeled potatoes save you time, but you get more nutrition as well. Much of a potato’s fiber and vitamins are found in or directly under the peel.
  • Add another flavor dimension to this creamy side dish by using garlic butter instead of regular butter.
