Scalloped Potatoes



    Determined Triathlete Never Lost Hope

    1 Tbsp. Butter
    4 Each Cloves of Garlic-thinly sliced, or minced
    2 ½ Cups Heavy Cream
    4 Each All-Purpose or Idaho Potatoes-peeled, very thinly sliced

    ½ Cup Gruyere or Swiss Cheese-grated
    Salt and Black Pepper to taste
    • Melt butter in heavy saucepan, add garlic, and cook briefly until aroma is released, do not burn! 
    • Add heavy cream, bring to a boil, turn down to simmer, and let reduce for about 5 minutes until 1 ¾ cups remain.
    • Season very well with salt and pepper. 
    • This cream should taste almost over seasoned, since the potatoes are very neutral in flavor.
    • In large bowl, combine sliced potatoes and grated cheese, toss well to combine.
    • Lay this mixture evenly into a 6” X 8 ” baking pan that has been coated with vegetable spray. 
    • Pour cream evenly over the layered potatoes.
    • Bake uncovered in a preheated 375°f oven for about 45 minutes to one hour, or until potatoes are tender, and there is a deep brown crust on top. 
    • Let rest at room temperature for 5 minutes, and serve.
