As a widow, I cook for myself much of the time and have learned to scale down recipes that I often served when our four kids were still at home. This recipe makes just the right amount.


  • 1 small potato, peeled and sliced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In a small saucepan, combine potato slices, milk, garlic, salt if desired and pepper; bring to boil. Pour into a buttered 10-oz. custard cup. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 35 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
