Very good! I wanted to serve au gratin potatoes w/ Easter dinner. Not wanting to make my usual recipe (which calls for canned items), I was on the lookout for something w/ a little homemade pizzaz. B/c my ham had to cook at 350 deg. for 2.5 hrs., I needed a recipe that also cooked at the same temp., so I decided to give Ingalyn's recipe a try. The thought of 2 cups of melted cheese on top of my potatoes didn't appeal to me, so I added finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese (fine shreds melt better) to my cream/milk/flour mixture & heated on med-low heat, whisking constantly until melted. I dbl. everything to accommodate the 6 adults & child I was serving (who all wanted seconds!). To speed prep, I used a food processor to thinly slice my potatoes. I then put them in a lg. pot of ice H2O & set in the fridge until I was ready to assemble (just be sure to drain WELL!). I sliced my potatoes quite thin, so I only had to cook them for 40 min. (covered the entire time). I then added an add'l. 1/2 c. of cheese on top (IN ADDITON to the 2 c. add. to my sauce) & broiled on low for at least 3-4 min. to brown & crisp the top. After resting for 10 minutes, my sauce thickened nicely. Other than my fiance commenting that these were too garlicky (he's SOOO picky!), everyone had nothing but positive comments about them. I still like my good 'ol standby recipe (yes, canned items CAN be good!), but I'm glad I gave this a try. It sure impressed everyone! Thanks for sharing, Debbie! :)
