New Cheese Potato Recipe

      When I was searching for a potato side dish to have with grilled steaks last week, I found a recipe for Scalloped Potatoes that sounded pretty good, but I really wanted something with cheese so I used the scalloped recipe as the base and changed a few things.  We thought these were excellent.  ( I'll also post this on the Recipes #1 page under  4  Salad, Vegetable and Side Dishes for later reference.)

Cheese Potatoes
1/4 c. chopped onion
2 1/2 T. butter
3 T. flour
3/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
2 1/2 c. milk
6-8 thinly sliced potatoes (3-4 c.)
2 inch slice of Velveeta cheese from 2 lb loaf
1-2 c. grated Colby Jack cheese

      Melt butter.  Stir in flour till blended.  Add milk, salt, pepper, onion, Velveeta cheese.  Cook and stir till cheese is melted and sauce has thickened.
      Place potatoes in 9x9 baking dish.  Cover with sauce.  Bake uncovered, at 350 degrees for 60 minutes. Top with Colby Jack cheese and return to oven till cheese has melted and is bubbly (about 15 min.)
      Serves 4-6.
