6 medium red potatoes, sliced thinly
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
4T. butter
4T. flour
2C. milk
1/2C. cream
2tsp. salt
1/4tsp. pepper
2tsp. minced garlic
2C. shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1/2C. freshly grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9x9 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour, and cook 3-4 mins, until golden brown. Slowly add milk and cream, whisking constantly to prevent lumps. Cook an additional 5-6 mins, or until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in the salt and pepper and one cup of the cheddar chees.

Layer 1/3 of the potato slices as evenly as possible in the prepared baking dish. Pout 1/3 of the sauce over the potatoes and spread to cover. Sprinkle 1/3 of the parmesan cheese and 1/3 of the remaining cheddar cheese over the top. Repeat the layers twice more.

Cover with foil and bake for one hour. Remove foil and bake for an additional 20-30mins, or until golden brown and bubbling on top.

Let cool 15 - 20 mins before serving.
