      oh wow! These are delicious scalloped potatoes. I do not care for thyme and left it out, followed the rest of the recipe using whole milk and using 2 red onions. I also probably used twice as much cheese (we are cheese lovers!). This recipe is delicious and it will be on my holiday table as well.
