Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30-45 minutes
2 T. butter, softened
8 large russet potatoes, scrubbed clean
3 C. heavy cream
1 C. whole milk
1/4 C. all-purpose flour
4 gloves of garlic, finely minced
2 tsp. salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 C. freshly grated sharp Cheddar
2 green onions, sliced thin (white and light green parts only) for garnish
What to do:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Smear softened butter all over the bottom of a baking dish.
Slice potatoes, and then cut slices into fourths. (bit size pieces) You can also cube your potatoes if you prefer.
In a separate bowl, whisk together cream, milk, flour, minced garlic, salt, and plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
Place 1/3 of the potatoes in the bottom of the baking dish. Pour 1/3 of the cream mixture over the potatoes.
Repeat this two more times, ending with the cream mixture. Cover with foil and bake for 30 – 45 minutes. Remove foil and add grated cheese to the top of the potatoes, bake for 20 minutes, or golden brown and really bubbly. Allow to stand for a few minutes before serving by the spoonful. Garnish with green onion!!! Delicious!
To make to dish cook faster, I put the whole casserole dish in the microwave for about 15 minutes to cook. You will have no problem making sure all your potatoes are done. I have added bacon and ham to this dish and let me just say WHOOT!! WHOOT!!!
