Prep Time 15 minutes Cook Time 40 minutes Serves 6



  1. Pre-heat the oven to 425 °F. Grease a casserole dish with butter and set aside.
  2. In a dutch oven or large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, salt, pepper, dried thyme and paprika. Cook until onion is translucent and starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and whisk in arrowroot for about 3 minutes.
  3. Pour in milk and bring sauce to a boil. Once at a boil, lower heat and let simmer, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  4. Stir in 2 cups cheddar cheese. Lightly salt and pepper potatoes and add them to the sauce. Stir often for 10 minutes, or until potatoes start to soften.
  5. Transfer potato mixture to a greased casserole dish. Top with more cheddar cheese and bake for 30 minutes uncovered.
  6. Top with scallions and parsley or herb of choice and serve warm!
