WW Au Gratin Potatoes

I found this recipe on the Weight Watchers website and I was BLOWN AWAY by how amazing these potatoes are, so yummy!!! By far the BEST au gratin potatoes I have ever made. I served them with these delicious apple and Gouda cheese chicken sausages from Costco. They are pre-cooked so you only have to reheat them. The potatoes are 3 points a serving and the sausage is another 3 points, so 6 points for the whole dinner! Jarom is already asking when we can have that for dinner again!

Weight Watcher's Au Gratin Potatoes (Serves 8)


1 spray(s) cooking spray

1 Tbsp butter

1 medium onion(s), thinly sliced

2 Tbsp all-purpose flour

2 cup(s) fat-free skim milk

2 pound(s) Yukon Gold potato(es), thinly sliced

1 cup(s) low-fat shredded cheddar cheese

1 tsp table salt

1/4 tsp black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 2-quart covered baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour; add milk slowly, stirring. Add potatoes and stir to mix. Bring to a boil. Stir in 3/4 cup of cheese, salt and pepper.

  • Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and level out surface. Bake for 1 hour, uncovered. Cover and bake until potatoes are fork-tender, about 20 minutes more.

  • Change oven temperature to broil. Sprinkle remaining cheese over potatoes. Broil 6 inches from the heating element until the cheese is golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces.
