Ultimate Scalloped Potatoes

You know the traditional, loved by all, cheesy potato recipe, sometimes referred to as 'funeral potatoes,' (Pammy would only let us call them sunshine potatoes).... anyway, as much as I love them, and I do love them, mostly because of the cheesy part of the recipe - sometimes I like a little variety. Chris, my darling sister-in-law, gave this recipe to me years ago... bless her! You will be blessing her to when you try them out. The are a highly requested item at our house!

For the fast method, find these potatoes at your local grocery store. You will need two packages of the Homestyle sliced potatoes
Otherwise, peel 8-10 good size potatoes. Boil until crisp tender. Drain and slice
Butter a 9x13 pan and cover the bottom of your dish with the potato slices
Grate 1 cup or 4 oz Swiss Cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
In a saucepan, combine:
1 cup whipping cream
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 garlic cloves, crushed
Cook just until the bubbles begin to form around the side of the pan
Don't let the milk mixture boil
Once the mixture has bubbled, remove from heat and let it cool

Layer half of the potatoes in your prepared baking dish
Top with half of the cream mixture
Then add 1/2 of the cheese (swiss and parmesan)
Repeat the layers
Bake uncovered at 350 for 55-65 minutes.
Make sure it is a golden brown and bubbly
My family removed this from the oven and served it before I could snap a picture of the finished product. Sorry!
