Potato--Say Cheese!

OK--I cannot convey to you the delight of these potatoes and have you fully grasp the fantastic flavor these had. We have a restaurant I cannot venture into because they make the best dirty martinis on the planet as well as the best cheesy fries. Cheesy fries and dirty martinis are like magic--oh I mean are bad for you--yes that is what I meant, bad for you.

Well, recently we had a lot of potatoes from the farm stand and I wanted to use up a good portion of them before they went bad and started a gang or something in our pantry. So, I thought--who doesn't like potato and cheese mixtures? (Now I will get emails from all the people who do not.)

Potato Say Cheese
serves 12
10 large potatoes, washed well
1 large onion chopped
3 cloves of fresh garlic minced
1 cup your favorite hard cheese-shredded
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tbls dried parsley flakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Thinly slice the potatoes and place in a large bowl. Mix the eggs and milk together fully and pour over the sliced tubers. Add in the onion and garlic and stir, let sit for about 10 minutes.
Next place this mixture into a glass baking dish and cover with the shredded cheese.

I made sure to really shred mine on the thinnest shredding to make sure it covers and blends with the potato--one cup can go a long way if you do this.

Bake the potatoes for about 45 minutes or until they are fork tender. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

Other Good Ideas:
--add in various seasonings to change the experience -chili powder, cumin, paprika
--add to a crock pot and allow to cook all day while you salivate waiting for them
