I usually make these from scratch, but it was a real low energy day, so I took the easy way out. They turned out cheesy and delicious, and everyone loved them. This is the way I will make them from now on.


  • 6 big potatoes sliced thin, enough to fill your casserole
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 can Campbell's cheddar cheese soup, undiluted
  • 1/3 cup cream
If you change the amount of potatoes, adjust the cheese accordingly. Use the kind of cheddar you like, sharp, mild, etc. You can also use a different cheese soup, nacho cheese, for instance)


Layer half the potatoes in your casserole dish. Sprinkle on pepper to taste (I don't add salt as the cheese and soup are salty already). Spread the cheese soup over top of them, and half the grated cheese. Layer on the rest of the potatoes, and half the rest of the cheese. Drizzle with the cream.

Cover and bake 1 hour at 325 degrees F. Remove from oven and sprinkle on the rest of the cheese. Return to the oven without the cover and bake for another 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. If the cheese starts to brown before the potatoes are done, cover loosely until done.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium low heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until dark brown, about 15 minutes. Stir in the garlic and flour and cook 1 minute more.

This recipe was our Thursday night supper when all 5 kids were living at home. It is a one dish casserole meal that I usually serve with a tossed green salad and/or a veggie on the side.

Well, call me flattered, Michael! Hopefully, this recipe will do the trick to please you :-)

Deeli's Potatoes Au Gratin With Ham

3 medium russet potatoes peeled and cut in to 1/4 inch slices

2 cups cooked ham, diced

1/2 red onion, diced

3 tbsp butter

3 tbsp flour

2 cups milk

1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded

1 1/2 cups Monterey jack cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Layer one half of the potatoes in bottom of a baking dish, top with the ham and onions and finish layering with remaining potatoes.

In a medium saucepan melt the butter over medium heat, add flour and stir for about one minute.

Add milk and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture has thickened.

Add all cheese and stir until just melted.

Pour mixture over the potatoes, ham and onions.

Cover and bake for about one hour.

Test for potato doneness and if potatoes are close to being tender continue baking without a cover for fifteen more minutes in order to brown the top of the casserole.

Bon Appetite and let me know how you like it ;-)

Easy Au Gratin Potatoes

This is so good...also seen it called Party Potatoes and Funeral Potatoes, cause its a good pot luck dish. Some also crush up cornflakes mix with melted butter and put on top last 10-15 minutes or so when cooking to give it a crunchy topping. (04/08/2008)

Slice or dice potatoes. Saute onions and pepper in butter, add flour and milk. Cook until thick. Add remaining ingredients. Butter casserole dish and alternate sauce and potatoes until full. Or just mix the potatoes and sauce together and pour into casserole. Bake in moderate oven until heated through, 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.
