Sorry, I don’t have measurements for this one, this is one I “eyeball.”
When cooking the potatoes, make sure they’re done, but not so overdone that they fall apart when you fork or knife them. It helps if you slice them before boiling, usually 1/4 inch thick.
In a small casserole dish, layer flour, salt and pepper (to taste), cheese, small “dallops” of butter, and potatoes — in that order. You’ll want each to form a layer, repeating until you either fill the dish or run out of potatoes. Top dish with extra cheese and butter.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes.
When removed from oven, pour cream or milk into dish to create a “sauce” from the cooked ingredients.
Alternatives: This is a great dish for adding left-over ham or turkey for a “potluck” dish. I also enjoy a clove of garlic in mine as well — it would help to roast it first! Or use the bottled/pre-cooked kind from the supermarket.
