Colby is soft and springy, with a sweet and mild flavour. This all-purpose cheddar style cheese is always a winner! The recipe for this month is a hearty Potatoes au Gratin.
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
2 cups milk
1 cup shredded Klein River Colby
5 cups thinly sliced peeled potatoes
1/2 cup chopped onion
Preheat oven to 200 °C. In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until smooth.
Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil, then cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened.
Remove from heat and stir in cheese until melted. Add potatoes, onion and garlic.
Transfer to a greased baking dish. Cover and bake for 1 hour. Uncover and bake 30-40 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
Serve and enjoy!
