Ingredients and Equipment:

  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 2 cups of non-fat milk
  • 1 6.5 oz container of Uniquely Greek® Roasted Red Pepper Feta Spread
  • 2 lbs of potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup of low-fat extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 9” x 11” baking dish
  • Large frying pan

 

Preheat oven to 375°.

Coat your baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Place your frying pan over medium heat and pour in the extra virgin olive oil.
Add in onion and garlic and cook —stirring occasionally—until the onion and garlic begin to brown (about 5 minutes).
Stir in the flour then slowly add in the non-fat milk.
Add in the Uniquely Greek Roasted Red Pepper Feta Spread, slowly stirring it in until it has dissolved.
Add in potatoes, stir to mix together all of the ingredients and bring the pan to a boil.
Stir in 3/4 cup of cheese, salt and black pepper.
Pour mixture into the prepared baking dish. For the best results, be sure to evenly spread the mixture throughout the dish.
Bake uncovered for 1 hour.
After 1 hour of cooking time, cover the dish with foil and continue to bake for another 20 minutes.
Change the oven temperature to broil heat, sprinkle the remaining cheese over the potatoes and broil (at 6 inches from the heat source) until the cheese is golden brown (about 1 to 2 minutes).
Add fresh chopped parsley as a garnish.
