Lavender Au Gratin Potatoes

These yummy lavender au gratin potatoes make a great side dish.

Prep time 40 minutes.
Bake time 1 hour
Let stand 10 min.

Preheat oven to 350

6 cups sliced potatoes. Cook in salted water for 5 minutes, drain and set aside.

Saute until tender
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon chopped dried lavender buds

Add to onion mixture and stir.
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Add 3 cups milk all at once and cook until it is bubbly and thickens.

1 cup cheddar cheese

In a 2 1/2 to 3 quart greased baking dish place 1/2 of the potatoes. Pour 1/2 of the sauce over potatoes and 1/2 of the cheese. Repeat.

Cover and bake 1/2 hour. Remove cover and bake another 1/2 hour or until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat and let stand 10 minutes before serving.

I even like this leftover and cold.
