Au Gratin Potatoes

My step-dad requested au gratin potatoes as a side with our Easter ham so I obliged.  I found this recipe here (of course) and made only a couple small changes.  They were divine.  Mind you these are not for the calorie counter--I think I gained one whole pound just eating these potatoes at lunch yesterday.  So off to the gym I went this morning.  No regrets.
*Note, Fry's currently has a 5 lb bag of potatoes for $.88 so hop on over there and get some and make these to go with your leftover easter ham or roast or whatever you have.

Au Gratin Potatoes

3 lbs russet potatoes, scrubbed
1/2 onion, chopped
6-8 cloves garlic, minced
3 c. heavy cream
1 c. milk
4 Tb flour
2 tsp salt
lots of fresh black pepper
2 c. sharp cheddar cheese, grated

Preheat the oven to 350.  Slice the potatoes and quarter the slices.  In a bowl mix together garlic, cream, mlik, flour, salt and pepper.  Spray a 9x13'' pan with cooking spray and layer half the potatoes, half the onions, half the cream mixture, half the cheese.  Repeat.  Spray a piece of foil with cooking spray so the cheese doesn't stick and cover the baking pan with it.  Bake for 40 minutes, remove the foil and bake another 10 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked.  Let stand 10 minutes before serving.  Enjoy!
