Top-ranked recipe named "Bill Knapp's Au Gratin Potatoes"
For best results, use whole milk and real butter. No substitutes! Can top with buttered soft bread crumbs.
"Taste just like at Bill Knapp's. I worked at Bill Knapp's for over 35 years. Before baking the potatoes, sprinkle paprika lightly over top as done in the rest. Helps aid in browning and appearance."- jengbloom
Prepare potatoes -- dice, boil until soft, and chill.
Melt butter in large saucepan. Add flour and blend. Gradually add the milk and cook until thick. Add remaining ingredients and stir until cheese melts. Add potatoes and stir well. Pour mixture into a greased casserole dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350F for 25-30 minutes, until top is nicely browned.

jengbloom 4 years agoMade for grand-daughter's wedding. There were 60 people who attended. Found it very easy to make and the comments from the guests was excellent and like Bill Knapp's.
mrovick 4 years agoI add 2 tablespoons chopped onion and a dash of garlic to this recipe. I also use southern style frozen hash brown potatoes rather then fresh diced and boiled. Speeds things up.

CMORWOOD 6 years agoI would add some leftover ham, cut up in this.
mleary 7 years agoOK, but please! Not velveeta. I'd rather use Elmer's glue. I made this with mozarella cheese and it was great. I also used red potatoes.
