Ingredients

  • 2 boxes Betty Crocker™ au gratin potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (6 oz)
  • 1 1/2 cups finely shredded Monterey Jack cheese (6 oz)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 can (2.8 oz) French-fried onions (about 2 cups)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Place potatoes (from au gratin potato boxes), and Cheddar, Monterey Jack and Parmesan cheeses in baking dish.
  • 2
    In 3-quart saucepan, heat water to boiling, stir in sauce mixes (from au gratin potato boxes) with whisk until dissolved. Stir in half-and-half. Pour over potatoes and cheese in baking dish. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  • 3
    Stir potatoes; sprinkle with onions. Bake 5 to 7 minutes longer or until French-fried onions are golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving (sauce will thicken as it stands).

  • Mix up the cheese flavor with other finely shredded cheeses like sharp white Cheddar, pepper Jack or Gouda.
