these potatoes are not only delicious but they're easy to make and they re-heat great !


  1. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Llightly butter a 13x9 inch pan so the potatoes won't stick.
  3. Cut your potatoes into very thin slices (width wise).
  4. Organize half of the potatoes in the pan.
  5. Sprinkle salt and pepper on potatoes to taste (I use about 3/4 teaspoon of pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt).
  6. Add a layer of cheese (1 cup ).
  7. Peel 3 cloves of garlic (but leave them whole).
  8. In a small sauté pan add 1 pint of heavy whipping cream, the 3 whole garlic cloves, and 1 teaspoon of chicken flavor bouillon (the bouillon is optional but I always add it.).
  9. Evenly add the second layer of potatoes.
  10. Add salt and pepper (same amount).
  11. Add the rest of the cheese (1 cup).
  12. Once the heavy whipping cream mixture comes to a boil REMOVE the 3 garlic cloves; pour mixture evenly over the potatoes.
  13. Bake for approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes.
  14. Enjoy !
