Baked Creamy Potato Slices




Hello all, it took me awhile to post again. My laptop is out of my hand for quite sometime and my desktop was also down. Thank God, I have these two once again. I made this dish last New Year's Eve. Actually its a forgotten one, I used to make it when my kids were little. I was thinking what to make and I wanted a very simple dish in lieu of rice which will be great with meat. My daughter told me why don't you just prepare the potato dish, you use to bake one with cream and lots of cheese. Oh yeah, now I remember. It used to be my daughter's favorite until she gets tired of it so I stopped making. 

Ingredients:
4 whole Russet Potatoes, scrubbed clean or peeled
2 tbsp butter, softened
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup fresh milk or whole milk
2 tbsp flour
4 cloves garlic, grated or finely minced
1 tsp salt 
1 tsp ground pepper 
1/2 cup cheese ( combination of cheddar and parmesan )

Direction:
Smear softened butter all over the bottom of a baking dish
Slice potatoes, then cut slices into fourths 
In a separate bowl, whisk together cream, flour, minced garlic, salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
Place 1/3 of the sliced potatoes in the bottom of the baking dish. Pour 1/3 of the cream mixture over the potatoes.
Repeat this two more times ending with the cream mixture.
Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown and really bubbling.
Add grated cheese to the top of the potatoes and bake for 3 to 5 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Allow to stand for a few minutes before serving by the spoonful. Enjoy!



Just look at that...the real essence behind the picture is that.. the aroma will make you crazy and crave for more. Top with more cheese..go ahead..its creamy, yummy and a great comfort for the hungry, for the broken hearted, for someone whose happy, lonely or angry. Go ahead, eat your heart out. The greatest happiness on earth is when you do something and they eat ..and they beg for more... and they beg for more... they ask you to do it again and again. 

Hmmmnn...for now lets enjoy our time. I remember back home, our truest moment came with sweet potato, our local "kamote". I grew up in the province where the simplicity of life is so warm and natural. Theres no potato, no cream, no whole milk etc... Life is full of surprises.. Come in. Lets eat. lets giggle and lets be merry.
