Scalloped Potatoes

Today is reveal day for Secret Recipe Club! This month I was assigned a wonderful, fun blog,
A Day in The Life. It is authored by Danielle, who is the mother to 2 adorable little boys, and she lives in beautiful Kentucky, which is right across the river from where I grew up, and it holds a special place in my heart. Danielle's blog has many recipes to choose from, but I chose this particular recipe because I thought it would be a wonderful addition to our Father's Day festivities. And it was! Delicious Scalloped Potatoes!

Scalloped Potatoes
1 1/2 cups Heavy Cream 
1/2 teaspoon dried Thyme
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground Nutmeg
2 pounds Russet Potatoes
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. 
         Butter or spray a casserole dish.

Peel your potatoes, and then
using a mandolin or slicer, cut your potatoes
into 1/8" slices.

In a medium saucepan, over medium low heat, warm up the cream, thyme, garlic and nutmeg. Keep your eye on the cream because you do not want it to boil over.

Place a layer of potatoes in the bottom of your prepared casserole dish, overlapping slightly.
Season with pepper. 

Pour about 1/3 of the cream mixture over the potatoes.
Sprinkle some of the parmesan and cheddar over the potatoes.

Do this for 2 more layers.

Bake, uncovered, for 40-45 minutes.


Thanks Danielle for a great recipe, that was loved by all and made a delicious
addition to our Father's Day celebration!

I have NEVER made scalloped potatoes from anything but a box and I'm ashamed :(. I think, after reading this, the time has come to toss the box and make it from scratch! Great job!
