Should I skimp out on the milk?
Absolutely not! The milk is a major part of this, and it’s something that helps to create the texture and the taste that works for this.
Without the milk, it usually makes the sauce a little bit too thick, and not as smooth and creamy as it would with the other kinds of sauces over the top of it.
If you want to make it even smoother, add more milk, but make sure that all of the milk put in is cold, since it mixes better, and is smooth.

- 4cups thinly sliced potatoes
- 3tablespoons butter
- 3tablespoons flour
- 1 1⁄2cups milk
- 1teaspoon salt
- 1dash cayenne pepper
- 1cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 1⁄2cup grated cheese, to sprinkle on top
Grab a small pan used for sauce, and then melt your butter and put the flour in there, blending it together until it fully combines. Let this sit for a bit to thicken up.
Put the cold milk the recipe calls for into there, stirring this completely with your whisk.
Put the cayenne and the salt on top of it, seasoning the mixture.
Take the saucepan and cook this on low heat until it’s boiling and the consistency is smooth. You may need to stir this every so often with your whisk used in the previous step.
Lower your heat, and then add more cheese in to stir it.
Add about half of the potatoes that you’ve sliced into a dish that’s greased. Make sure it’s a casserole kind of dish.
Put half of the sauce on top of the potatoes there, and then, do another layer with the potatoes, followed by the sauce you made.
When finished, put another layer of cheese along the top of this as needed.
Place it in your oven at 350, and make sure it’s not covered.
From there, you can cook this until it’s a nice golden brown color. You can from there add a topping of paprika to the top of this if you’d like to add a little more color.
