Walleye & Potato Au Gratin

Walleye & Potato Au Gratin

Simple, warm, hearty, delicious. I make this casserole the day before an ice fishing excursion, storing it overnight in the refrigerator. It's easy to pop it in the oven for a hearty winter supper on, say, a Sunday night after a day on the ice. Serve it with a light green salad, a crunchy bread, and a glass of red wine. It works well with walleye, catfish, panfish, or any other firm fish.

To serve four . . .

2 c. filleted and deboned fish cut into 1 inch cubes

3 lg. baked potatoes, cooled

1/4 c. green onions, chopped

3/4 c. sharp cheddar cheese, grated

2 c. sour cream

salt and pepper to taste

dash of tabasco

sprinkle of paprika

'¢ Peel the baked potatoes and cut them into 12 cubes the same size as the fish portions. Then, combine all ingredients except the paprika in a greased casserole dish.

'¢ Cover and refrigerate 3 hours or overnight so the flavors mix.

'¢ Sprinkle with the paprika and bake at 350F for 30 to 45 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
