Recipe: Potatoes Au Gratin

Something a little unusual in the way of a potato dish is produced when POTATOES are combined with cheese, bread crumbs, and a cream Sauce to make POTATOES au gratin. In addition to supplying flavor, these ingredients increase the food value of the POTATOES so that a highly nutritious dish is the result.

POTATOES AU GRATIN
(Sufficient to Serve Six)

  •  3 c. diced cooked POTATOES
  •  1/2 c. grated cheese
  •  1/2 c. bread crumbs
  •  1-1/2 c. thin white Sauce

Grease a baking dish, place 1/2 of the POTATOES in the bottom of the dish, and sprinkle over them 1/2 of the crumbs and then 1/2 of the cheese. Put the remainder of the POTATOES in the dish, sprinkle with the rest of the cheese, pour the hot white Sauce over all, and place the remaining crumbs on top. Set the dish in a hot oven and bake until well heated through and brown on top.
