Au Gratin Potatoes

Our potatoes came out amazing last night. Not a scrap was to be found, we did save some of the extra milk left-over to be used in gravy tonight. The cheese browned beautifully leaving a soft underbelly. The flavors were slight but perfect contrast to the rich steak we served with it. This recipe is so simple, feel free to tinker.

Au Gratin Potatoes
3-4 cups sliced potatoes
1 1/2 cups whole milk or light cream
1/2 cup lemon cheese
butter or margarine
Heavily coat your 8x8 baking dish with butter. Layer in the potatoes to prevent them from sticking together. Pour over the milk and crumble on the cheese. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender. Let cool slightly before serving.
