The Best Potatoes Au Gratin

Original recipe came from thepioneerwoman.com
I changed it up just a tad.
2 tablespoons of softened butter
4 large russet potatoes, well washed and diced
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons flour
3 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup finely grated cheddar cheese
3 green onions, thinly sliced
crumbled cooked bacon, if desired
(You could add cubed ham to make this a main dish.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a 9x13 casserole pan with the softened butter. Toss diced potatoes in pan, set aside.

Combine milk and cream in medium bowl. Whisk in the flour, garlic, salt and pepper until smooth. Pour over diced potatoes. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 20 minutes more. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon and return it to the oven for 5 minutes. Top with green onions and serve it nice and hot. So good!
