I'm not sure where this recipe is originally from, but I submitted it to a local church's cookbook that was published in the late 70's. The potatoes are fantastic and can be prepared for baking the day before you plan to serve them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine milk,butter,salt and pepper in a large saucepan and slowly bring it to the boiling point.
  2. While the milk is heating, peel and thinly slice the potatoes, dropping the slices into the hot milk.
  3. Add garlic, partly cover, and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until potatoes feel almost done when tested with the point of a sharp knife.
  4. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray.
  5. Spoon potatoes and their liquid into the prepared casserole dish and sprinkle with the cheese.
  6. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven until the sauce has thickened and the cheese has melted and browned slightly, about 45 minutes.
  7. If prepared the day before, cover and refrigerate potatoes and increase baking time by about 20 minutes.
