Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes Recipe

Recipes, Side Dishes 7 Comments

One of my favorite foods to cook with are potatoes. I think I could eat potatoes every day. This is one of my favorite side dishes to make with potatoes. It takes a little longer than most of my side dishes I make, but it is worth it. I like to make it with steaks, vegetables, and a salad. If you like cheesy and tasty potatoes, you are sure to love these! Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 5-6 potatoes, sliced into ¼” slices
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • garlic salt to taste
  • onion powder to taste
  • Bacon Bits (optional)
  • 4 tbs butter

  5. Pour half the cheese mixture over the potatoes.
