Creamy Gouda & Garlic Potatoes Au Gratin

I love starch.

I love cheese.

I love garlic.

And, I LOVE these potatoes.  I CRAVE these potatoes. Creamy, cheesy, garlic-y perfection.

I also love my husband, but I will so stab his hand with my fork if he tries taking a bite off of my plate.  I’m all for sharing…but that’s pushing it.  

But, I will share my recipe with y’all so that you can see for yourself what I’m going on & on about.  You just have to try these.  It just wouldn’t be right if you didn’t.
