The recipe comes from Cooking Light. I've doubled it on several occasions using a 9 x 13 pan with the same great results. I usually make this for family holidays, and everyone enjoys it. I buy garlic in a jar, already minced, and, being a garlic lover, I tend to just add a large spoonful to this recipe. I also use fresh, very coarse-ground black pepper, so I add a hefty sprinkling between the layers of potatoes. Also, I do not peel my potatoes, just give them a great scrubbing! Enjoy! :)
