  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 1/2 cups hot milk
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 large russet potatoes cut into ¼-inch thick slices


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter over a medium heat. Add garlic and cook until soft and fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Whisk in flour. Cook 1 minute. Slowly whisk in milk. Add salt. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer until thickened, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in pumpkin puree. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Layer half of the potatoes in the bottom of the prepared dish, cover with half of the sauce,spreading it with a spoon or spatula to evenly cover the potatoes. Sprinkle half of the cheese on top. Repeat for next layer.
  • Place in oven and cook until potatoes are fork tender and top is golden brown, about 1 hr. If the top is browning too quickly,you can cover with foil and remove a few minutes before the potatoes are done cooking.
