Ingredients:
5 medium potatoes
1 can of cheddar cheese soup
2 cups of milk
2 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons of flour
1 /12 teaspoon of salt
1 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese

Cooking Essentials:
Oven

Knife
Cutting board
Measuring cups and spoons
Medium sauce pan
Wooden spatula
Whisk
Baking dish


Prep:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel and chop the potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes and place in buttered baking dish.

Directions:
Make a roux, which is a thickening agent, by heating the butter in a pan over low heat. When the butter melts, add the four and whisk continuously until the lumps are gone. Next, slowly add the milk and turn the heat up to medium. You will see the milk begin to thicken. Add the cheddar cheese soup and heat through. Add the salt and pepper and stir. Pour the cheese mixture over the potatoes and top with shredded Cheddar cheese. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes until the potatoes are soft and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
