Potatoes au Gratin

I made Potatoes au Gratin as a side dish to Hähnchen Schnitzel I had the other day. It is quite easy to make and there a lot of versions how to make it´on the internet. I decided to use the recipe from But I changed here and there some of the part to suit what I had.

  • 3 cups diced cooked potatoes - I sliced thinly
  • 6 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese - I used Emmentaler
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs


Potatoes au gratin recipe.
Place potatoes in a shallow, broilerproof baking dish. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt 6 tablespoons butter. Remove 3 tablespoons of butter to a cup or bowl; set aside. To the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter in the saucepan, add flour. Stir to blend well; gradually stir in milk. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until sauce is thick and smooth. Add cheese and continue stirring until cheese is melted. Pour sauce over potatoes in baking dish; mix gently. Place bread crumbs in a bowl; drizzle with remaining 3 tablespoons melted butter; toss to coat. Sprinkle buttered bread crumbs evenly over potatoes. Bake potatoes au gratin at 200°C for about 15 minutes to heat through, then broil until golden brown. Recipe for potatoes au gratin serves 4.
