  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Combine the potatoes, cream, and milk in a large pot, and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce the heat. Simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are beginning to soften.
  2. Transfer the potatoes to a shallow 2 quart (2.3 liter) baking dish. Sprinkle the garlic over the potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Strain the cream mixture through a fine sieve, then pour over the potatoes. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 1 hour. Remove the foil and bake 30 minutes more, or until the potatoes are hot and the top is golden.
  • Bake the casserole on a sheet pan, to catch any spills, or line the bottom of your oven with foil. This dish can easily spill when it starts boiling.
