3 c milk
1 clove garlic, minced

1. Preheat the oven to 325 with the rack set on the lower third of the oven.
2. Combine sliced potatoes and milk in a large saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Simmer potatoes for 5-7 minutes.
3. Place a colander over a large bowl to catch the draining milk. Drain potatoes and reserve the milk. Measure the milk. If it's less than 2 cups add additional milk to bring volume up to 2 cups.
4. Rub the bottom of a 9x13 pan with butter. Spread minced garlic on bottom of a pan. Add potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Dot with remaining butter and pour reserved milk over potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese.
5. Bake for 80-90 minutes.
