These are pretty yummy. The original recipe had all heavy cream and I have lightened it up somewhat. These are rich so save then for special meals. I do not add salt as I have used salted stock, and cheese. You may adjust the seasoning to your taste.

I have yet to make these myself but have been dreaming of them ever since I had them at the chef's house. They are the best, creamiest, most wonderful scalloped potatoes I have ever eaten!! Connie suggested saving them for special meals and I agree...try breakfast, lunch & dinner. These will make any meal special!
I realized that I had not revisited the review since making them myself. Every single word I wrote still stands and they are now my 'damn the calories' favorite potato dish!
Very good recipe, but if this is the "lightened up" version, then I really don't want to know about the original: one serving of these and you will already have consumed more than your entire daily allowance of saturated fat. In fact, it came out of the oven with a layer of fat sitting around it (at the edges of the baking dish), probably from the cheese. This keeps well, and can be frozen and reheated with good results.
