It's a Matter of ......Augratin Potatoes (made from Dehydrated Potatoes)-Revisited

A few weeks ago, I had my family over for yet another Sunday Dinner.  It seems like the only time I do anything 'in-depth' anymore with the busy schedules we keep around here.  So, what do you do when time is of the essence?  Use your tried and true recipes...that's what!

I made the Potatoes Augratin which has been a very, very popular post on this blog.  It is repined over and over on Pinterest.  I happen to like  it because it is so good and so very easy. Here are the step by step photos to show the simplicity of this delicious dish using your Food Storage Staples.  

Melt butter in a saucepan.

Add flour and milk to the melted butter.  (I use my powdered milk here). Stir and cook until the sauce is smooth.

Add your shredded cheese and stir as it melts to keep the sauce smooth.

Place your dehydrated potato slices in the casserole dish.  Pour the sauce over the potato dices.

Bake....and enjoy!  It takes just a few minutes to prepare and I promise you really won't have left-overs when you are feeding a crowd.
