Potatoes au Gratin

A type of Bulgarian meal

Potatoes au Gratin


2 lbs potatoes, chopped in cubes or sliced in discs
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
2 cups milk
1 tbsp seasoned salt (Vegeta works great) or 2 vegetable soup cubes
a pinch of black pepper
1/2 lbs cheese (Swiss or mozzarella work great)
2 tbsp fresh parsley, dill, mint, finely chopped


Cook the potatoes in a cup of water until tender - about 20 minutes at 375 F - in a covered pot. You can also boil or steam the potatoes, or cook them in the microwave. To make the cheese bйchamel sauce - fry the flour in the butter for 3 minutes, add the milk and stir until smooth sauce forms. Add the cheese and stir until it completely melts. Add the bechamel sauce to the potatoes and mix well. Cook in the oven for another five minutes. You may top it with grated cheese and bake it in an open pan until a golden crust forms.
