  • Grease the bottom and sides of a 2 quart baking dish.
  • Peel and slice potatoes thinly. Cover with water to prevent them from discoloring while preparing the other ingredients.
  • Heat 4 tbsp. butter in saucepan over low heat until melted. Blend in flour, salt and pepper. Cook over low heat until smooth and bubbling.
  • Gradually stir in milk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute, continue to stir. Remove from heat after boiling.
  • Drain the potatoes and blot off excess moisture with paper towels. Arrange potatoes in greased baking dish in 3 layers, topping each of the first 2 layers with half of the onion and 1/3 of white sauce.
  • Top the last layer of potatoes with the remaining sauce. Dot with 1 tbsp. butter.
  • Cover and cook for 30 minutes in an oven preheated to 350° F. Uncover and cook 1 hour longer.
  • Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
Note: This recipe doubles nicely and fits into a 9 x 13 baking dish. You may have to add 15 minutes to cooking time to ensure that the potatoes are fully cooked.
