"Simple recipe that my mom made for us when I was a kid. Love it! I use 2% milk all the time and it works just fine."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish or 3 quart baking dish with cooking spray.

Step 2

Peel the potatoes and slice into very thin slices, at the most 1/8-inch thick slices (use a mandolin for best results).

Step 3

Rinse potatoes in cold water.

Step 4

Combine the potatoes, garlic, butter and milk in a Dutch oven or large saucepan. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Simmer over medium heat about 5 minutes or until the potatoes are slightly softened and the milk is slightly thickened and foamy. Stir often so the milk doesn't scald.

Step 6

Remove from heat and stir in the cheese. Pour the potatoes into the baking dish.

Step 7

Bake 1 hour uncovered until the potatoes are tender, the milk is absorbed and the top is nicely browned.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I sprinkled on garlic and onion powder before I added the cheese. Creamy, cheesy and tasted great with pork chops I grilled up. Yummy!
