  • Preparation and cooking time
    • Total time
  • Easy
  • Serves 4
A family favorite using the microwave leaving the oven for other things


  • 3 Tablespoons of margarine
  • 1 Onion chopped fine
  • 3 Tablespoons of flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 1/2 - 2 Cups of milk (Depending on how saucy you want it)
  • 4 Potatoes approx.


  • STEP 1
    In a 2 quart casserole combine butter and onion and microwave at high for approx 2-3 minutes or until butter melts and onion is slightly tender
  • STEP 2
    Blend in flour, salt and pepper
  • STEP 3
    Blend in milk and microwave uncovered for approx 5 - 7 minutes or until thickened (stir twice during this step)
  • STEP 4
    Cut potatoes in half lengthwise then crosswise into thin slices. Add as many slices to the thickened sauce until you get the consistency you want. I like there to be some sauce so don't always use all of the potatoes. Experience will help you decide in the future
  • STEP 5
    Cover and microwave at high for at least 15-20 minutes (Stirring twice) until the potatoes are as tender as you want. Let stand covered for 5 minutes
  • STEP 6
  • STEP 7
    Follow the recipe above, stir in at least 1 cup of cheddar cheese to the thickened sauce until melted (taste and add more if you want it cheesy er) then add potatoes and follow the rest of the recipe
