Step by Step Method

Step 1

In a saucepan melt butter over medium heat, add flour, salt, pepper and thyme, cook, stirring for 1 minute

Step 2

Gradually whisk in milk, cook, whisking constantly until thickened, 5 to 8 minutes; remove from heat and add 1 cup of shredded cheddar, stir to mix well; set aside

Step 3

Peel or scrub the potatoes well and leave peal on, thinly slice; (I use the slicer on my food processor; makes it quick and uniform slices, I also slice the onions with the food processor).

Step 4

Layer one third potatoes in an 9 inch x 12 inch buttered glass baking dish; spread with half of the onions, repeat layers, arrange remaining potatoes over top; pour sauce over top; if necessary lift potato onion layers to let the sauce drip through.

Step 5

Sprinkle the remaining 2 cups shredded cheddar evenly over the top

Step 6

Cover tightly with foil and bake in 350F degree oven for 1 hour

Step 7

Uncover and bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned and potatoes are tender. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving

These potatoes are soooo good! The thyme was a nice touch of flavor. They had just enough cheese and the sauce made them rich and creamy.
