Don't you just love cheese and potatoes? I sure do come on in for the easy simple recipe.
2 lbs potatoes
2 cups half and half
2 1/2 cups grated Cheddar Cheese
3 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper
remove from heat and drain. Cool slightly.
Sprinkle lightly bottom of baking dish with 1/4 cup of shredded cheese.
Salt and Pepper
Cheese *** until last layer we will add milk egg mixture before cheese on last layer***
Heat half and half in medium saucepan on medium heat. Heat just until smoking and right before boiling but do not boil.
Remove from heat
Pour egg, milk mixture over potatoes.
Top with cheese
Sprinkle with a little paprika
You may substitute half and half with whole milk, or 2 percent milk or you may use half heavy cream with (half milk or even water but not all water).
You can also cut down to one large egg
You may use low fat cheeses and even a mixture of different cheeses.
All are good but may not be as creamy as recipe calls for.
