Au Gratin potatoes

Ham and au gratin potatoes have always been my favorite meal that grandma made.  Here is her potato recipe:

Cook 6 medium potatoes in boiling salted water until tender.  Drain, peel, cool, and dice.  Place potatoes in a 9x13 greased baking dish.  Melt ½ c butter add ½ c enriched flour.  Add 4 cups milk and cook over low heat until thick, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat. Add 1tsp salt, and 2 cups grated cheddar cheese.  Stir until cheese melts.  Pour sauce over potatoes. Sprinkle top with 2 cups grated cheddar.  Bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

One of my favorites of hers too! Funny thing is she kept saying, no she didn't make 'em this way... she just used the box... NOT when I was a kid for sure! ssc
