Pioneer Woman's Perfect Potatoes Au Gratin

Be prepared for Pioneer Woman Recipe Overload!!!
Thanks to the worlds greatest boyfriend ever (sorry, he's already taken), 
I have not one, not even two, but FOUR of the Pioneer Woman's cookbooks!!
The BIG ones! 
I have always loved her, and I didn't even know she had that many books out!!

So of course I have read them all...cover to cover...and will be dissecting as many as I can, 
to make them gluten-free!

Enter, Perfect Potatoes Au Gratin!! Only a few minor adjustments and it.was.amazing! 
My whole family loved them, and I will absolutely be making them again!
They were super easy to throw together, and would seriously go with anything!
I hope you try them out!

7-8 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons milk
1 can evaporated milk
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 & 1/2 - 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped green onions or dried chives for garnish, optional

Butter a 9x13-inch baking dish; set aside.
In a medium bowl, gently whisk together milks, cornstarch, garlic, salt and pepper until smooth.
Place potatoes in prepared dish and pour milk mixture over the top.
Cover and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
Remove the foil and bake 25 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender when poked with a fork, and they aren't swimming in liquid (there probably will still be some liquid, but the potatoes should not be floating at this point!). 
Sprinkle with cheese and bake an additional 5-10 minutes, or until melted and bubbly!
Sprinkle with green onions or chives, if desired, and serve!!!
