Recipe Time

Prep: 30 Minutes
Cook: 10 Minutes
Bake: 2 Hours, 30 Minutes


1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups milk
1 (10-ounce) block Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 pounds potatoes, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups soft breadcrumbs
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour, and cook, whisking constantly, 2 to 3 minutes or until flour is lightly browned. Whisk milk into butter mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 6 minutes or until thickened. Stir in Cheddar cheese and next 3 ingredients, stirring until cheese melts.

Spread 1/4 cup cheese sauce evenly in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Layer half of potatoes over sauce; top with half of remaining cheese sauce. Repeat with remaining potatoes and cheese sauce.

Bake at 325°, covered, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Stir together breadcrumbs, melted butter, and Parmesan cheese; spread evenly over potatoes. Bake, uncovered, 20 to 30 more minutes or until potatoes are tender.
