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.

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
- 2 lbs russet potatoes, sliced very thin

Directions See How It's Made
- 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.
