Three Cheese Au Gratin Potatoes

My mother lives with me and its just the 2 of us here so sometimes I try to make my recipes smaller… this one is for 2 people.

2 medium russet potatoes, peeled and sliced into ¼-inch thick slices

Toss with:
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Season to taste with:
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Place in single layer on baking sheet and bake in a preheated 450 degrees F oven until they begin to brown.

To make the Cheese Sauce whisk together:

1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon flour in a saucepan over low/med heat. Heat until bubbling and stir in:

1/2 cup half-and-half – heat to bubbling again and add:
3/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese – stirring until smooth.

Place potato slices in a shallow casserole; pour cheese sauce over top.

Sprinkle with sliced (cooked and crumbled) bacon slices.

Transfer to broiler for a couple minutes just to brown and bubble the top. At this point you can garnish with fresh parsley.

Serves 2
