Au Gratin Potatoes with Garlic

These potatoes went well with the ham and asparagus on Easter.  I think I have finally found an Au Gratin recipe I will use again.  I kept out about 1/4 cup of the cheese and put it on top of the casserole.  Makes 8 servings.

  1 1/2 Lb Potatoes                                                                     2 Cups 1% Milk
  1 Tbl Garlic, Minced                                                                1 Tsp Salt
  3 Tbl Salted Butter                                                                   1/8 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
  3 Tbl Cake Flour                                                                      1 1/2 Cups Cheddar, Shredded

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Slice potatoes and boil until soft.  Drain and put in a large bowl.

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and sauté the garlic until fragrant.  Stir in flour.  Add milk, 1/2 cup at a time, and stir until smooth before adding additional milk.   

Whisk in salt, cayenne and cheddar cheese.   

Pour over the potatoes, stir well.   

Pour into a casserole dish and bake for 45 minutes.   

Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
