Walleye & Potato Au Gratin: The Midwest at its Best
Print Recipe

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.

Serves 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
  1. 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.
  2. Cover and refrigerate 3 hours or overnight so the flavors mix.
  3. Sprinkle with the paprika and bake at 350F for 30 to 45 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
