Main/Side Dishes


Ingredient Amount
1/4 cup / 125 ml Butter
3 cloves / 3 cloves Garlic (minced)
1/4 cup / 125 ml Flour (all purpose)
1 tsp / 5 ml Thyme (fresh & chopped)
1 tsp / 5 ml Dill
2 Bay leafs
1/2 tsp each / 3 ml each salt/pepper
2 cups / 500 ml Milk
1/2 cup / 125 ml Whipping cream (32%)
6 Yellow potatoes
1 Small onion (sliced)


In saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook garlic, stirring, for 1 minute. Add flour, thyme, dill and bayleaf, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk and cream; cook, whisking constantly, until boiling and thickened, about 6 minutes. Remove bay leaves. If the sauce is too thick, use a bit more milk to thin it out a bit. Peel and thinly slice potatoes. Grease ( I use butter) (2 L) a square baking dish or casserole dish. Layer the potatoes and onion and season each layer with salt and pepper and a couple dabs of butter. Ladle some of the sauce between layers. Pour the rest of the sauce over top, using back of knife to ease sauce between layers. Cover with foil and bake in 350°F (180°C) oven for 1 hour. Uncover and set the oven on broil until lightly browned, about 5-7 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
