These potatoes were delicious! I was skeptical about using 1/2 & 1/2 and starting them on the stove top, because I usually use cream and let everything cook for 1+ hours in the oven, but I was pleasantly surprised.

I made this for my sister's 50th birthday party. It was the most popular dish among many amazing recipes. Super rich, super cheesy and super delicious! The garlic and cayenne made the difference; they added just a little kick at the end, but I wouldn't call it spicy. Even the kids were gobbling it up. It made way more than "4" servings. I w...
