Easy Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

My Mom makes a great scalloped potato that everyone just loves when she has them!,,,The only problem is she doesn't use a recipe!....so trying to recreate them is not very easy,,,,well I thought I would try and come up with a version...they aren't as good as hers but it's a start and my family gave them the thumbs up!...Here is what I did....Enjoy!

10 small to medium Idaho potatoes
1 -1/2 cups fat free half and half
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (plus more for sprinkling)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1/3 cup fine Italian breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper
2 cups Monterey Jack cheese (divided)
Preheat oven to 400
(total cooking time about 1 hour)
Cut potatoes into chunks and place in a large bowl
In a saucepan add the half and half, parmesan cheese
and garlic...add salt and pepper, simmer on low-medium for a few minutes until heated through and then pour over potatoes
Add the bread crumbs and 1 cup of the Monterey Jack cheese and mix well together.
Pour into a greased casserole dish that has a lid and sprinkle with a little more parmesan cheese and 1/2 cup of the Monterey cheese
dollop the butter on top
Cover and bake for 45 - 50 minutes
once it looks done and bubbly add the other 1/2 cup of Monterey and finish cooking uncovered until browned to your liking
