Au Gratin Potatoes

Comment on this recipe

I serve these potatoes with baked ham at our family's Christmas dinner.

Ingredients

6 medium potatoes
1 pound Velveeta cheese
1/4 cup margarine
4 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups milk

Instructions

Peel and cook potatoes. Cut potatoes and cheese into 1-inch cubes. Put potato and cheese cubes into greased 9x13-inch baking pan. Make white sauce by melting margarine over low heat. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Cook until mixture in smooth and bubbly. Stir in milk and bring to a boil. Continue to cook and stir until thick. Pour white sauce over potatoes and cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Note: More potatoes may be needed depending on size of potato. White sauce may need to be thinned as desired.
