[potatoes au gratin]

serves 2-3 as a side dish
2 medium russet potatoes, peeled
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup whole milk
3/4 Tbsp flour
1 large garlic clove, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp butter, softened
3/4 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp or so of freshly chopped parsley

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut potatoes into 1/4 inch slices, then quarter each slice.
Beat together cream, milk, flour, garlic salt and pepper until well mixed.
Coat the inside of a large baking dish with the softened butter.
Arrange 1/4 of the potatoes on the bottom of the dish.  Pour some of the cream mixture over the potatoes.  Repeat this layering two more times.
Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes.  Uncover and bake another 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are starting to brown on top.  
Sprinkle cheese on potatoes and bake for another 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and starting to brown.  Sprinkle parsley on cheese and let cool for a couple minutes.  Serve and enjoy.
