He peeled all of the potatoes (one of the few tasks in the kitchen that I despise) together with fifty-fifty did all of the breakfast dishes earlier nosotros got started on this recipe!
I love, love, beloved cheesy potatoes! We arrive a more-complete repast yesteryear adding inward smoked sausage. Served amongst around beautiful light-green beans on the side, this was dinner yesterday! And, boy, was it ever comforting together with delicious!
But, if I am beingness completely honest hither ... these are amazing the adjacent day! I accept ever preferred scalloped or cheesy potatoes leftover! Yes, they are yummy when commencement made, but the agency the flavors simply larn meliorate the adjacent 24-hour interval genuinely knocks my socks off! This is the argue the recipe makes a niggling to a greater extent than than nosotros genuinely demand for dinner ... I MUST ENSURE THAT THERE ARE LEFTOVERS!

* My sausage of alternative happens to come upwardly inward a 16-oz. package, hence I role 1 of the 2 large links inward the package. I honour that if I role much more, the dish is agency besides greasy.
Liberally coat your dull cooker amongst non-stick spray.
In a large sauce pan over medium heat, saute onions inward the butter together with olive crude for a few minutes until turning translucent. Sprinkle flour over onions together with stir to coat. Cook for a couplet of minutes, together with then whisk inward milk. Allow to come upwardly to a slight simmer.
