Chuck's Potatoes Au Gratin

This is yet another example of making what you want, with what you have in the kitchen.
  • Butter, 1 T (opt).
  • Celery, 1 stalk.
  • Cornflakes or similar cereal, crumbled / crushed, 1 C (opt).
  • Onion, 1 medium.
  • Potatoes, 5 - 6 medium, sliced and quartered.
  • Soup, anything creamy (I used tomato), 1 can.
  • Milk, 1/4 C or so.
  • Cheese, 1 C (I used Parmesan grated).
  • Cumin, 1/4 t.
  • Ginger, 1/2 t (OK, I like ginger).
  • Pepper, 1/4 t (I add pepper to everything).
  • Salt, 1/4 t (If you wish).
  • Tumeric, 1/4 t (It's good for you).
  1. Slice the potatoes, 1/4" thick - then quarter the slices.
  2. Dice the onion, and the celery.
  3. Mix celery, onion, and potatoes in a large casserole dish, and microwave until the potatoes are chewy (15 - 30 minutes).
  4. Grate or mince the cheese, if necessary.
  5. Mix the cheese, milk, soup, and spices - pour the mixture over the vegetables, and mix well.
  6. (Opt) Melt butter / margarine, mix with cornflakes, pour over the soup / vegetable mixture.
  7. Bake in oven or microwave, until potatoes are soft, and cheese is nicely melted (another 15 - 30 minutes).
