1. Preheat over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease a casserole dish with spray or butter.

2. Melt butter in a small saucepan on medium-low heat and blend in flour. Let that sit for a minute or two, and then add all of the cold milk and whisk. Season with salt and cayenne and let cook on low heat until smooth and boiling, while stirring occasionally.

3. Turn off the heat and stir in the cheese to the milk mixture.

4. Place half of the slice potatoes neatly in the casserole dish. Then, pour half the cheese sauce over that layer.
