A simpler and less expensive version of Gratin Dauphinois but a rich filling vegetable dish. Or can be served with a salad for lunch. If you are a garlic lover more cloves of garlic can be used. Cheddar cheese can be used instead of Gruyere cheese. Just put your own flair to this dish.

This recipe was easy to prepare, the ingredients are things I usually have on hand and the taste was fabulous! I did use 2 cloves of garlic and a blend of cheddar, mozarella and parmesan cheeses, simply because that's what I had on hand. I would recommend this to any one who enjoys potatoes!

Enjoyed my taters - great taste. Looked beaut to serve too. Cut the recipe in half, used 3 cloves of garlic and Leerdammer cheese (it's like a swiss but works great when baking etc), 2 % milk was fine. Took 35 minutes for half the recipe.. Thanks Chrissy-o

Creamy potatoes & cheese with the hint (well more than a hint from me) of garlic. I did put some crushed garlic into the potatoes as well as rubbing the dish with it as we love garlic. Another great keeper for my collection. Thanks Chrissy, :)
