Outstanding Cheezy Potato Bake

What you need: 

oil, as needed
6 small-medium red potatoes, sliced in 1/2" rounds
1/2-1 yellow onion, sliced
vegan buttery spread, to taste (I use Earth Balance)
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1-1 1/2 cups unsweetened nondairy milk or water

What you do: 

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Prepare a casserole dish (I used an 8x8" glass pyrex) with oil to cover the bottom. Set aside. Add 1 layer of potatoes to the bottom of the dish (I used 2 potatoes per layer, for 3 layers).
2. Add some sliced onions to the top of the potatoes, season with lots of salt and pepper, and add a few dollops of vegan butter on top of the layer.
3. Add the nutritional yeast to a bowl, and pour in enough milk or water (I used a mixture) to make a sauce (medium thinness). Season this with salt and pepper. Pour some of the sauce over the first layer, but remember you need enough for 3 layers.
4. Continue to layer the dish with potato, onion, salt, pepper, vegan butter, and cheezy sauce. You should have enough sauce to pour some on top. I recommend lots of onions on top because they brown so beautifully. Make sure you season with enough salt and pepper!
5. Pour some milk in the dish to about 1/2 up the dish. Bake for 45 minutes-1 hour (until the potatoes are very tender, and the sauce is bubbling).
Honestly, we could not tell any difference between this and the au gratin potatoes of our past.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I made these tonight for my parents. They usually don't eat my food unless it's dessert. My dad frowns on "fake" foods like not-milk, Earth Balance, Nutritional Yeast, etc. They both ate them and liked them. Success!!

ha! the only reason I thought to make these were because OWW had posted about AC's barfy potatoes in the reasons to smile thread!!

ummm, ok I'm confused  :-\ (doesn't take much to confuse me!)......I really thought I'd reviewed AC's barfy potatoes already, but I appear not to have done.

I have made these several times, just eyeballing the amounts.  Always good.  I love the onions on top - because of this recipe I generally add onions on the top of my mac n cheeze now too!

I tend to just layer the potatoes and pour the cheezy sauce over the top and it's always turned out good.  I'm making this again tonight - first time I've made it for the omni bf, so we'll see how he likes them.

hahhahahhaha!
It's a legend! They are barfy!
LMAO!!!!

I made this last night and it was AWESOME!  This is the best potato recipe I have ever found anywhere!  My husband loved it too!

For my first time trying this recipe, it turned out okay.  The family definitely wants to try this again but, next time, I will add more onion and nutritional yeast sauce.  May even add a few other veggies to the mix!! :)

I was scared this was not going to turn out since there were no measurements and I was just guessing.  Im so use to following recipe's to the T.  To my pleasant suprise this was SUPER delicious!! ;)b
I will be making this many times again!

Why oh why did I wait soo long to try this?  I never was a fan of au gratins before, but these are amazing!  Mine came out a little runny, I think I'll use a little less soymilk or add more potatoes.  I will definately make this over and over again!

I just made this and am about to pop it in the oven for my hubby and sons. I ended up making three batches of sauce to thoroughly saturate the potatoes and onion. I added some parsley and smoked paprika to the layers and top as well. I CANT WAIT UNTIL DINNER!  ;)b
