Bake time 2 hrs, 30 mins
Yield Makes 8 to 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

How to Make It

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

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

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