  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  1. To make the sauce, melt butter, onion and garlic over medium low heat. Cook until onion is softened, about 3 minutes. Add flour and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to low. Combine milk and broth. Add a small amount at a time whisking to thicken. The mixture will become very thick, continue adding a little bit of liquid at a time whisking until smooth.
  3. Once all of the liquid has been added, bring to a boil over medium heat while continuing to whisk.  Stir in salt and pepper and let boil 1 minute.
  1. Grease a 9″x13″ baking dish. Place 1/3 of the potatoes in the bottom and season with salt and pepper. Pour 1/3 of the cream sauce sauce over top.
  2. Repeat layers ending with cream sauce. Cover and bake for 45 minutes.
  3. Uncover and bake for an additional 35-45 minutes or until golden brown and potatoes are tender. Broil for 3-4 minutes to obtain a golden top.
  4. Allow to rest for 15 minutes before serving.
