Potato Casserole

This recipe is more of a guideline for me, I am always adding extra stuff. If you want the potatoes to be more creamy, add more cream or milk. I like them firm and cheezy, not so creamy.

You can make this an entree by adding cooked ham, chicken, or even shrimp! Trust me, it works!

I just made this for my elderly parents, and my father ate so much he was sick later. hmmm...

Prep:

1 Hr

Cook:

1 Hr 30 Min

Ingredients

6 large
russet potatoes
2 medium
sweet onions (vidalia, spanish, etc.)
2 clove
Fresh Garlic
6 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
6 c
light cream or half and half
salt and pepper
pinch
spices to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Peel and Boil potatoes until they are cooked but not mashable. (they will finish cooking in the oven later) -- Let cool and slice thin (1/2" slices are great!)
2
Slice onions to thin strips (not dice) - Chop garlic
3
In a hot skillet with olive oil, sautee onions until starting to caramelize, then add garlic (garlic will burn if added too soon). Let cool when finished.
4
While this is happening, grate cheese.
5
In a casserole dish, spray with PAM or other spray fat. This will make clean up a breeze!
6
Start layering potatoes, onions, and cheese. repeat. and repeat. When you're out of potatoes, put the rest of cheese (maybe grate some more! I'm a cheeze hound)... Cover and bake in 375 degree preheated oven for 1.5 hours. Take lid off dish 10-20 minutes before finishing to give it a nice golden crust (my favorite part)
7
Enjoy!
