The perfect combination of potato, a little garlic, cream and parmesan cheese. And leftovers heated up the next morning with an egg on top are spectacular! —Mike Selman

What You'll Need
  • 6 large Idaho potatoes
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 -3/4 cups grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper
  1. 1. Peel the potatoes and store in cold water until ready to use.
  2. 2. Preheat the oven to 325 ˚F.
  3. 3. Grease or spray a ¼ sheet pan.
  4. 4. Mix together the heavy cream, garlic, salt and pepper. Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper to taste.
  5. 5. Slice the potatoes on a mandoline or with a knife as thinly as possible. (I like them thin enough to almost see through the slice of potato.)
  6. 6. Dredge the potatoes in the cream mixture and place a layer of slices in the pan, overlapping. Sprinkle each layer lightly with the grated Parmesan.
  7. 7. Repeat the layers to your desired depth. Pour the remaining cream mixture over and around the potatoes.
  8. 8. Bake in a 325 ºF oven for about an hour, or until potatoes are tender and the top is nicely browned.
