“The recipe doesn't designate a cooking time so I'm guessing. However, cooking time aside, this sounds scrumptious! I'll be making it very soon.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. The Pan:
  2. Large oven dish, must be at least 6 inches deep.
  3. If not this deep, make sure it is large around. I'd say minimum 4" deep.
  4. A large disposable foil casserole pan should work fine.
  5. Directions:
  6. Peel (or not) and slice potatoes to no thicker than a dime (2-3mm).
  7. Layer the bottom of your oven dish with 2-3 layers of potatoes.
  8. Cover potatoes with a thick layer of grated cheese.
  9. Crush one clove of garlic over the top of the cheese, spreading out evenly.
  10. NOTE: If you know how much cheese and garlic you WILL use, just crush the garlic and mix it with the cheese to make spreading easier.
  11. Continue to do this 3-4 times depending on how deep your oven dish is.
  12. End up with a cheese and garlic layer to finish, not potatoes.
  13. Mix milk and egg together and pour over the top of the cheese.
  14. Bake at 180º C (350º F)until potatoes are soft and cheese topping is browned off
  15. Cooking time will vary depending on number of layers and thickness of potato slices.
  16. VARIATION: adding meat of your choice to this with the cheese/garlic layer, would make this a great main dish.
  17. If other ingredients are added, you may have to double the egg/milk mixture, and adjust the cooking time.
