Au gratin potatoes

These are pretty simple to make although not at all healthy. They are a definite “treat” food….. and so worth it!


2 large russet potatoes, peeled and thin sliced

8 ounces heavy cream

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon white pepper

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

1 clove garlic

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Prepare an 8×12 baking dish with non-stick spray. Place the cream, garlic, salt, pepper, 1/4 cup of cheese, and thyme in a sauce pan. Heat until warm but not boiling. Stop cooking when you begin to smell the garlic. Remove the clove of garlic. Place 1 layer of potatoes (not overlapping) in the pan. Drizzle some of the cream over. Add another layer of potatoes. Add more cream. Continue layering until all potatoes are used. Pour the remaining cream on top. Bake for 40-50 minutes total. Sprinkle with remaining cheese after 20-25 minutes of baking. Cook until cheese on top is slightly browned and potatoes are fork tender.
