Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400. Butter a large baking dish.

Slice the potatoes into sticks and then cut the sticks to create a dice.

Combine the cream and milk in a bowl. Add the flour, salt and some pepper. Whisk it together well so that the flour is incorporated into the milk/cream mixture. Add the diced potatoes to the prepared baking dish and pour the creamy mixture all over the top.

Cover the dish with foil and bake for 20-30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake 15-20 minutes more. Just before serving, sprinkle on the grated cheese and return it to the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly, 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle on the green onions and serve it hot. Creamy, dreamy and divine.
