Cheese Part 4 - Vegetable Dish

We had at least one vegetable dish thanks to Lesley.   She's getting really good at whipping up some tasty veggies.   It's simple and tasty!  And Lesley, like we told you... you didn't over cook because the cauliflower still had a crunch.   We look forward to more tasty dishes from you. (with or without being wrapped in your infamous pastry shells)  

1 cauliflower cut to medium roses
3-4 potatoes thinly sliced and halved (like chips)
1 1/2 - 2 c heavy cream
1 1/2 c milk
6 tbsp butter, chilled
1/4 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp salt or to taste
1/4 tsp pepper or to taste
1/4 tsp garlic powder or to taste

Arrange potatoes and cauliflower in 9x9 baking dish (preferably ceramic or glass).  In a medium bowl, stir cream and milk together then add salt, pepper, coriander and garlic. Pour cream mix over veggies. (if using butter, put a pat over veggies throughout out dish) Cover with aluminum foil and cook in a preheated oven at 425. The time is tricky original dish says an hour but I checked mine at 30 minutes and it was done, almost too done, so I'd check it every 20 minutes until veggies are soft.  Sprinkle cheese over and bake for 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
