Ingredients

  • 2 pounds potatoes — (I used yellow), peeled, washed and sliced into 1/8 inch rounds
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese — (I used Kraft Natural Cheese Sharp Cheddar)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 shallot — , chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves — , pressed
  • 2 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 1/4 cups milk — (2%)
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Grease a 9x9 inch baking dish and set aside.
  3. In a medium skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add shallot and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently. Be careful not to burn it. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  4. In a small bowl mix together whole wheat flour and 2-3 tbsp chicken stock. Add the mixture to the cooked shallot. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the remaining stock, milk, salt, pepper and thyme. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 more minutes, or until it thickens a little, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  5. Arrange 1/2 of the potatoes covering the bottom of the baking dish. Pour 1/2 of the sauce over them. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese. Arrange the remaining potatoes on top. Pour the rest of the sauce. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese.
