  • 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 tbsp All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 cups Whole Milk
  • 6-8 Red Potatoes
  • 1 cup shredded white cheddar
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 375F. Coat an oven safe dish with nonstick spray. 
  • Place a saucepan on the burner and turn the heat on. Add butter to the sauce pan, once it's almost melted, add the olive oil. 
  • Add in the flour, stir until it smells a little bit nutty, for about 3 minutes. 
  • Add in onion and garlic powder, stir for one minute. 
  • Add 1/4 cup milk, mix well until it forms a paste, then add the milk slowly and gradually until all is added. Stir constantly to avoid lumps. 
  • Stir and cook until the sauce thickens a little bit just enough that it's not watery anymore. 
  • Slice the red potatoes evenly, make sure all the slices have the same thickness. 
  • Arrange the potato slices in the oven safe dish in circles, overlapping in a single layer. 
  • Sprinkle shredded white cheddar all over the potatoes. 
  • Pour the white sauce you made in the sauce pan over the potatoes, make sure they're covered. 
  • Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top. Cover with aluminum foil. 
  • Bake in the oven for 40 minutes covered. Then uncover and bake for an additional 30 minutes until potatoes are fully cooked and the sauce is golden and bubbly. 
  • Serve warm.
