Very very good. I used onion dip because I was out of sour cream. Did not peel the potatoes. I also used vermouth for the wine and much less butter. A bit less thyme too. Next time I will cut back on salt too. Will definitely make this again.

I like yukon gold potatoes and all the ingredients in this recipe, but I found the thyme to be a bit overpowering. It was okay - we ate it but I probably won't make again.

My BF who does not even like au gratin potatoes liked this dish. I have always been intimidated by making a gratin... Looks so difficult and time consuming in most recipes. This was sooooo simple to prepare. I loved the fact that there was not a heavy cream sauce all over the potatoes. I sliced the potatoes by hand and used a "seriously sharp" cheddar cheese ( that's what was on the package!) FF sour cream, and homemade chicken stock. Mixing the potatoes with all the ingredients was a little difficult since I was trying so hard not to break up all the potato slices... so instead I just used my hands to gently "massage" all the ingredients on. I didn't have any butter so I sprayed my 9 in square pan with olive oil and then layered the potatoes in. It cooked to perfection in about 40 minutes... Loved it! Had a little crispy edge to it and the potatoes were just soooo tender! Thanks for a lovely light potato dish!
