Potatoes AuGratin

A simple classic recipe taken from one of my favorite cookbooks (The Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook (1980)
These are not the AuGratin potatoes like the box you buy at the grocery. They taste more like  fried potatoes (only baked) with some cheese on top. Delicious!

3 Tbl butter, margarine, or oil
5-6 potatoes, peeled & thinly sliced
1 1/2 tsp salt (more or less to taste)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I used crumbled corn flakes)
  • Preheat oven to 425*. In 12x8 baking dish, melt butter. 
  • Remove from oven. 
  • Add potatoes and salt. Toss together and arrange potatoes in an even layer.
  • Sprinkle with cheese and bread crumbs. 
  • Cover with foil. 
  • Bake 20 minutes.
  • Remove foil and bake 15 more minutes until potatoes are tender.
