I'm not a big scalloped potato fan, because often I find that they are bland or have a nasty texture. These are the exception! If you have a mandoline or a food processer, use it to slice the potatoes- you need them to be really thin.
- 2 lbs russet potatoes, sliced very thin
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, chopped
- 3 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
- 1 cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated
- 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon white pepper
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, and mix until all of the potatoes are coated.
- Butter a shallow baking dish, and add potato mixture, flattening top of potatoes.
- Bake for 40 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and the edges bubble.
- Let stand for 10 minutes, then serve.
- Notes: I have made this ahead of time, and put the mix in a zip top bag in the fridge until I was ready to bake.
- For a browned top, dot with small chunks of butter before baking.
YUM! I made these to take to dinner with our friends and there were rave reviews all around. I use about 3/4 cup parm & 3/4 cup cheddar cheese and a little more cheddar on top at the last 10 minutes. I added 1/2 thinly sliced onion and used 1/2 & 1/2 in place of the cream. The fresh herbs and garlic give this a really nice flavor and they weren't as heavy as some au gratin potatoes can be, they were perfect with our BBQ steak and salad. I did have took cook them for about and hour a half so covered them with foil for part of the time. Thanks for sharing I'll be making this again. Made for ZWT 8 by another one of The Wild Bunch
Wonderful potatoes! I made half a recipe for the two of us and they were heavenly. DH finished off what was left even tho he said he was full. We will have these many, many times again. They were great with our roasted chicken. I did use swiss and parmesan for the cheeses.
Great potatoes! Even the non-fan of scalloped potatoes liked them! I added some shredded gouda with the parmesan, and sprinkled a little parmesan on top about 10 minutes before taking them out of the oven. This is a very easy recipe and went great with pork tenderloin! Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.
