Potatoes Au Gratin

4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper, finely ground
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
2 cups milk
2-3 white potatoes, sliced
1-2 sweet potatoes, sliced
1 cup grated Swiss or Gouda cheese, or any good quality cheddar, comte, emmenthal, etc.
1/2 cup finely ground bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon sweet Hungarian paprika

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In batter bowl, combine butter, flour, sea salt, pepper, and dry mustard. Microwave on high for 30 seconds to melt the butter. Whisk in the milk. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Whisk well. Microwave another 1-2 minutes, or until thickened. In meantime, slice the potatoes thinly and arrange them with the sliced onions in a 3 quart glass or pottery baking dish. Sprinkle with a little extra salt and some minced parsley. When the sauce is ready, pour it over the potatoes, lifting them to get it to flow evenly. Place in microwave oven for 8 minutes on high to partially cook the potatoes. Combine the cheese, bread crumbs, and paprika and sprinkle over the top and pop into the hot oven for another 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender and topping has melted and browned nicely.
