Ingredients:

6-7 medium Yukon gold potatoes, thinly sliced into 1/8th inch rounds (3 pounds gold potatoes — by weight is a more accurate measure)

½ white or yellow onion, cut into slices

For the sauce:

2 tbsp salted butter

¼ c all-purpose flour (whole wheat, all-purpose, or gluten-free 1:1 flour will all work)

1 1/2 c unsweetened almond milk (regular, skim or whole milk will also work)

8 oz sharp cheddar cheese (2 heaping cups shredded cheddar cheese)

½ tsp garlic powder

¾ tsp salt, plus more to taste

Freshly ground black pepper

For topping:

1/2 c Gruyere cheese (or sub more sharp cheddar)

¼ c grated parmesan

To garnish:

Fresh chopped parsley

Directions:

Step 1: Prepare the oven and preheat to 190 degrees C or 375 degrees F.

Step 2: Apply cooking spray in a 2-quart baking dish.

Step 3: Arrange the potatoes in three rows into the prepared baking dish.

Step 4: Fill each gap between the potato rows with the sliced onions.

To Make the Sauce:

Step 1: Place a saucepan on the stove and turn the heat to medium.

Step 2: Add 2 tablespoons of butter and allow it to melt.

Step 3: Add the flour and milk gradually. Whisk every addition.

Step 4: Allow the mixture to simmer. The texture of the sauce should be gravy-like.

Step 5: Reduce the heat to low and add the garlic powder, shredded cheese, salt, and pepper. Stir until well mixed. Make sure to add more seasonings if needed.

Step 6: Spread the sauce on top of the potatoes and onions. Make sure to cover them completely.

Step 7: Cover the entire pan with aluminium foil.

Step 8: Place it inside the preheated oven and bake for about 45 minutes.

Step 9: Remove the foil cover and sprinkle the 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese and 1/4 cup of gruyere on top.

Step 10: Bake for another 45 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 11: Remove from the oven and sprinkle freshly chopped parsley on top.

Step 12: Serve and enjoy!
